>            Reporter: Daniel Thayer
>             Fix For: 2.5
> Currently, perl is required to build Bro due to one small perl script.
> Since that script doesn't rely on any special features of perl, it can
> easily be rewritten to avoid the dependency on perl.  This is mostly
> relevant for FreeBSD, where perl is not installed by default.
