This is good. However, I'm still wondering if an environemnt variable
isn't the better approach. We'd set something like
BROCTL_INSTALL_PREFIX and then broctl uses that instead of the
configure-time prefix. The advantage is that one can run the
test-suite without messing with the Bro configuration (and hence don't
need another configure next time before doing "real" make install).
