First, some clarification is in order.  Generally, libnet-config is broken 
in several ways on many platforms, but that's largely irrelevant.  I 
removed the non-critical warning from configure.in about libnet-config 
- --cflags being broken a week ago.  Second, configure.in compensates for 
libnet-config being broken.

Second, you get a gold star, you spotted a bug!  Thank you.

There are two configure args you can use, --with-libnet-includes and 
- --with-libnet-libraries that can be used to deal with this until rc4.
