I have seen this occur with the rpm distributions because they are coded
to look for specific libraries in specific locations. My suggestion would
be to build from source so you can control the installation more

  One thing that gets me is that both tcpdump and ethereal work, which
  both require that library, as far as I know.

  I am trying to install the latest snort rpm, but it keeps failing,
  saying I'm missing libpcap.so.0.6.2, but I have libpcap.so.0.8.3.
  SHouldn't it work with a later version?
