BTW, how do you guys normally fix this type of problem? :) I have seen
that Patrick just defined his own type and used it instead which doesn't
look good to me. In snortnet piece I used memcpy() to copy one struct into
another along with typecasting which is ok for this kind of problem
because both types are equal but just use different names. However the
right way would be to let configure detect type used in libpcap and define
TIMESTAMP_TYPE accordinly.. I have a few thoughts how to get it done in
configure, if noone has a better suggestion to handle that, I can commit
it tonight. Thoughts?
