	Thanks for the help.  After I posted to the list I went back and
looked at libpcap.  I noticed that it was also looking for bison that was
not installed on the Solaris box.  I compiled and installed bison and then
recompiled libpcap, and everything went swimmingly.  Thanks for the help.

I am not completely sure  why at attimes it doesn't get linked there when you build libpcap (IMHO normally it should) and I will try to think of a solution to detect this problem from configure. The easiest way for you for the moment would be to either 'make LDFLAGS=-llex' (or '-lflex if you have installed) or edit Makefile and modify LDFLAGS to have -lflex  library there.
