I have used this procedure for 1.7.7 and soon 1.7.9.
I believe it is up to date. 

I assume you want to point all machines to just one which will display
the prewikka info? If that is the case you will need to register the
audit senders to the single prelude-manager which isn't detailed exactly
on those instructions (last I looked).

However, it is easy. Just follow the instructions for single server and
then register the non-prewikka machines to the main collector.

I register the audit prelude sensor with the prelude-manager on each
host. Then I register the prelude-manager to the prelude-manager on the
Prelude Collector/Server (set the "parent-managers" option
in /etc/prelude-manager/prelude-manager.conf.

Here are some example instructions for the above.
Edit /etc/prelude-manager/prelude-manager.conf 
      * Locate and uncomment the [relaying] section
      * Add parent-managers = <prelude server IP>

Register the prelude-manager with the Prelude Server's prelude-manager :
      * Run prelude-admin register prelude-manager "idmef:w" <prelude
        server IP> --uid 0 --gid 0
      * Open a second terminal window and ssh <prelude server IP>
      * On the Prelude Server, run: prelude-admin registration-server
      * The Prelude Server will generate a one time password. You will
        need to copy and paste the password to the first window when it
        prompts for the password.
      * Confirm the password
      * Acknowledge the registration in the Prelude Server terminal
