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