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

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.

Thanks David,

--with-libpcap=/usr added to the %configure line solved the problem.

This system is a standard RedHat 5.6 workstation, kernel 2.6.18-238.1.1.el5
and libpcap-0.9.4-15.el5.i386

BTW, I also built nmap 5.50 on RedHat 6.0 directly, no changes needed.
