#801: Configure option for specifying path for  ../etc/
 Reporter:  aashish     |       Type:  Feature Request
   Status:  new         |   Priority:  Normal
Milestone:              |  Component:  Bro
  Version:  git/master  |   Keywords:
 It would be useful to get a configure option to specify path for ../etc
 and all the files within.

 Currently defaults to  ....prefix/etc/ and has files broctl.cfg  (along
 with node.cfg and networks.cfg)

 Why is this needed?

 Keeping broctl.cfg out of the bro-base install, allows a tighter control
 on version control of the files in etc folder along with the other site
 specific policy files which are also outside the default /usr/local/bro
