#743: topic/jsiwek/openbsd-support
 Reporter:  jsiwek   |      Owner:
     Type:  Problem  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal   |  Milestone:  Bro2.0
Component:  Bro      |    Version:  git/master
 Keywords:           |
 This branch adds some support for building Bro on OpenBSD.  It exists in
 `bro`, `cmake`, `bro-aux`, `broccoli`, `broctl` repos.  One build catch is
 that the top-level Makefile may not work with the default `make` on
 OpenBSD, for now I added a note to INSTALL to use either gmake or the
 CMake-generated Makefile in the `build/` directory directly.  Another
 catch is that I saw runtime warnings coming from the libbind-9.4.2 package
 on OpenBSD 5.0 regarding mismatched symbol sizes, but some simple testing
 looked like Bro worked.

 I'm going to mark this for 2.0 since the changes appeared to not interfere
 with any of the officially support platforms, but can be moved back.
