libpcap "make install" doesn't copy any headerfiles but just the
archive. Seems to me that this should be considered "broken", who
would want to install an archive without headers?

tcp_wrappers has the same problem, even though it does provide value
without the headers. You will just run into problems when you try to
compile programs with libwrap support.

I usually just leave the source around on the development system
anyway, which is also useful to debug compilation problems that
somehow relate to the libs.
