[Bro] Bro install problems on linux

I tried compiling with CFLAGS='-g' and CXXFLAGS='-g' and while it
included the -g in all the compile lines when it went by I still don't
seem to get additional info in the gdb backtrace.  However during
compile I get about 30 or 40 warnings per file about mismatched sizes
for ints.  So I'm kinda guessing it might be related to 64bit
compatability if it's not just something i am doing wrong.  Whatever
the case gdb seems unable to give me any more info then that one line
of output.  If anyone has a better suggestion on how to get debugger
traceback with more info I will be happy to post that output.
