Justin Azoff created BIT-1437:

             Summary: broctl doesn't handle a missing broctl-config.sh well
                 Key: BIT-1437
                 URL: https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-1437
             Project: Bro Issue Tracker
          Issue Type: Problem
          Components: BroControl
    Affects Versions: git/master
            Reporter: Justin Azoff

On a few install from homebrew, this happens:

[BroControl] > install
removing old policies in /usr/local/Cellar/bro/2.4/spool/installed-scripts-do-not-touch/site ...
removing old policies in /usr/local/Cellar/bro/2.4/spool/installed-scripts-do-not-touch/auto ...

generating broctl-config.sh ...
Error: failed to resolve symlink '/usr/local/Cellar/bro/2.4/share/broctl/scripts/broctl-config.sh': No such file or directory

Broctl assumes that broctl-config.sh will always exist. Apparently the other binary bro packages have workarounds to ship an initially broken symlink for this file.  We could probably work around this for homebrew, but I think I have a fix that will just ignore a missing file initially.
