hi Spencer 

looks like a solaris installation. but libpcap in
/opt/sfw/bin - definitivly not 
it's placed in the lib-directory 
i use the compiler flags, which work fine for me
export CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/local/include -I/usr/sfw/include -I/opt/sfw/include'
export LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/sfw/lib -L/opt/sfw/lib' 
export CC=gcc

using this you don't need the --with-libpcap token

best regards 
hans
