bro.rc file missing

Hi,

I downloaded the latest version of bro 1.5. On installation following

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/bro
make
sudo make install
sudo make install-brolite

towards the end of make install-brolite I got this

make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/products/bro-1.5.1/aux'
/bin/chown -R `cat scripts/bro_user_id` /usr/local/bro/
cat: scripts/bro_user_id: No such file or directory
/bin/chown: missing operand after `/usr/local/bro/'
Try `/bin/chown --help' for more information.
make: [install-brolite] Error 1 (ignored)

Now I see that there is no file /usr/local/bro/etc/bro.rc on searching the archives I see that other users have got the same problem and
that there is a patch file for an earlier version.

I am installing this on an Ubuntu installation version 8.10. Am I missing some thing here to solve this issue ?

Brolite is depreciated in 1.5.1, please use broctl instead.

Thanks and Regards,

Note that BroLite is no longer supported and will be removed in the
future. That said, there's a patch for 1.4 in the tracker, see
http://tracker.icir.org/bro/ticket/51 . The patch was however never
confirmed to fix the problem. It might or might not work (and is
completelty untested with 1.5 afaik).
