Do you have libpcap development files installed? You don't say which
platform you are using, so I assume some sort of RPM based Linux
system - in which case you may need to install the libpcap-devel
package (some distributions likes to seperate core functionality and
the files required for development).
More information about your setup would be most welcome.
