Daniel Thayer commented on BIT-1437:

Justin, I looked at your fix and it looks good.  It allows broctl to create
the symlink in case it ever gets deleted, which makes sense because
broctl already had the ability to modify the target of the symlink (if
a config change caused the target to be in a new location).

If you're done with this branch, please do a merge request and I'll merge it.

> 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.
