[PATCH] configure: fix external libcap cross-compile
From: Mike Frysinger <vapier () gentoo org>

If cross-compiling nmap against an external libpcap, the configure will
always fail with no way around it:

checking pcap.h usability... yes
checking pcap.h presence... yes
checking for pcap.h... yes
checking for pcap_datalink in -lpcap... yes
checking if libpcap version is recent enough... configure: error: cannot run test program while cross compiling
See `config.log' for more details.

Same thing happens in the ncat/ subdir which isn't surprising as both seem
to use the same libpcap configure code.

If people are cross-compiling, then let's just assume their system doesn't
suck.  If it does, then it'll fail for other reasons anyways, so ...
