You are grepping for libcap, what you need is libpcap.  rpm -qa | grep libpcap, see if that is installed.

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.
