I have this occur most often with the rpm distributions. They are coded
to look for specific libraries in specific places. I would suggest
building from source in order to control the installation.

  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?
