There is a broken path in the ossec-control script. This bug was present in OSSEC's 2.6 release, and was fixed shortly after (no new release has been made though).
It's such a trivial fix there's no reason that I can think of not to include it.
Also in the pkg-message.in file a link to the wiki is included. The wiki may not be up to date, but the documentation is. A better link:
Fix: patch attached to fix the ossec-control issue
Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: Run ossec-control start
I'll take it.
Of course I forgot the reason I wanted to open a PR in the first place.
I don't think OSSEC has a requirement of BDB, so that flavor can
probably be removed.
