Thanks for 5.50, but I can't build it. I have a RedHat 5.6 i386

Can you see what I am missing? I'll happily send more information if

What is your kernel version? Perhaps the libpcap we bundle is
incompatible. Try installing the development package for libpcap and
then configuring with --with-libpcap=/usr, replacing /usr with wherever
your package manager installs libpcap.
