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 <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 <http://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.

a red hat 9, and it's asking by libcap 0.6 but red hat 8 and 9
