I think you are reading too quickly, you evidently did not read the message closely.  You are grepping for libcap, and snort is complaining that it needs libPcap (You are missing the P in between lib and cap).

Maybe u don't read the entire message, check it out again and u'll see that I make this step already and the ver differs. indeed the ver thats snort requieres is lower than I have installed(by defaut) in my system

	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
	   http://www.tcpdump.org
	   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
	libcap-1.10-12
	 
	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.
