Check This

checking for pcap_datalink in -lpcap... no

   ERROR!  Libpcap library/headers not found, go get it from
   or use the --with-libpcap-* options, if you have it installed
   in unusual place

this happen when I make a configure of snort

and now check this

# rpm -qa | grep libcap

I have installed(By system default) this ver of libcap, but snort is asking
me by a lower ver of it, and my question is How I can use my installed
version instead the lower that snort need?

Even when I use the param --with-libpcap-includes
or --with-libpcap-libraries and I give it the path of the libraries the
error persist

  If you would like a good, basic document from which to install Snort
  on a RH9 or Fedora Core 1 box, go to www.ntsug.com and download
  Patrick Harper's paper.  There are several versions there, one should
  fit your needs.  It is a paper that will require you to reload your
  machine, but will provide the correct information necessary to
  successfully install both RH9 and Snort.
