                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1271
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: Bro
    Affects Versions: git/master
         Environment: Xubuntu 14.04 3.13.0-36-generic x86_64
            Reporter: Todd C
         Attachments: bashlog.txt, CMakeError.log, CMakeOutput.log

Attempting to install a fresh instance of bro from source, cloned the master repository with git according to instructions on https://www.bro.org/sphinx/install/install.html

Made sure to install prereqs using the command listed, attempted to run the configure script and am receiving a few errors in regards to CMake.  Attached the bash output, CMake output, and error logs.

The error causing the break is as follows:

CMake Error at cmake/PCAPTests.cmake:58 (message):
  Can't determine if pcap_compile_nopcap takes an error parameter
