Comment (by dnthayer):

 In the output above, I see lines like this (notice that broctl is in
 41905 ?? Is 0:00.19 /usr/local/bin/python /usr/local/bin/broctl cron

 But the compile options you specified were:
 ./configure --prefix=/opt/bro --enable-perftools --disable-ruby --conf-

 So, how did broctl get installed in /usr/local/bin ?
 Did you manually copy or move files after doing "make install"?
 Or, do you have multiple versions of Bro installed on the same
 machine (in different locations)?

 I would suggest running "broctl config", and for each directory
 path in the output, make sure that each one exists.

 Also, check your PATH environment variable to make sure
 it doesn't list a directory for an older installation of Bro.
