Hello Tripwire community,

I am attempting to build and install the latest dsitribution of Tripwire (tripwire-2.4.1.2-src) on AIX 5.3.  I'm using the GNU C++ compiler.  I have succesfully run configure and make and am now running "make install".  Following is the taile nd of the output from the install process:

Using configuration file ./install/install.cfg

Checking for programs specified in install configuration file....

/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t exists.  Continuing installation.

/usr/bin/vi exists.  Continuing installation.

Verifying existence of binaries...

./bin/siggen found
./bin/tripwire found
./bin/twprint found

This program will copy Tripwire files to the following directories:

        TWBIN: /opt/tripwire/sbin
        TWMAN: /opt/tripwire/man
     TWPOLICY: /opt/tripwire/etc
     TWREPORT: /opt/tripwire/lib/tripwire/report
         TWDB: /opt/tripwire/lib/tripwire
TWSITEKEYDIR: /opt/tripwire/etc
TWLOCALKEYDIR: /opt/tripwire/etc

CLOBBER is false.

Continue with installation? [y/n]  y

The Tripwire site and local passphrases are used to
sign a variety of files, such as the configuration,
policy, and database files.

Passphrases should be at least 8 characters in length
and contain both letters and numbers.

See the Tripwire manual for more information.

Creating key files...

(When selecting a passphrase, keep in mind that good passphrases typically
have upper and lower case letters, digits and punctuation marks, and are
at least 8 characters in length.)

Enter the site keyfile passphrase:

A clear-text version of the Tripwire configuration file
/opt/tripwire/etc/twcfg.txt

that you delete this file manually after you have examined it.

Creating signed policy file...
### Error: Policy file parsing problem.

### Exiting...

As you can see, all appears to be going well up until creation of the initial policy file.  Any ideas on how to get past this?  Is Tripwire fully installed at this point and I just need to clean up the policy file and go about configuring things, or is my installation still incomplete?

TIA,
