> Someone on IRC asked about bro on openbsd issues.  I took a look and here is what I have found so far.  There are 3 issues:
> bro needs the libbind port installed to build, but cmake has trouble finding it
> Changing FindBIND.cmake lets configure works:
> {code}
> -            HINTS ${BIND_ROOT_DIR}/lib
> +            HINTS ${BIND_ROOT_DIR}/lib/libbind
> {code}
> This probably needs to be 
> {code}
>     HINTS ${BIND_ROOT_DIR}/lib ${BIND_ROOT_DIR}/lib/libbind
> {code}
> or such to not break other platforms
> The second is that {code}pcap_offline_filter{code} does not exist in the version of pcap it has (though I did my testing on openbsd 5.5 so the latest (5.8) may be different)
> Finally, openbsd does not have {code}wordexp{code} so src/broxygen/Manager.cc does not build. I ifdef'd it out most of {code}Manager::Manager{code} and bro built ok after that.  I'm not sure what it is doing there anyway..
