[Bro] Make error on Mac OS 10

Hello George,

I sadly do no longer have a copy of snow leopard, so I cannot really try
this myself. However, Bro should not hardcode any python library versions,
so I assume that python 2.7 actually already was present somewhere on your
system (e.g. installed by homebrew or macports) and that this is some kind
of include path issue.

Could you potentially include the full output of configure and a few lines
of make before the error occurs, either here or in a private mail to me?
