Hi Dan,

I've just done a simple ./configure with libpcap-1.5.2 and in the generated Makefile the following line can be found.

# Pathname of directory to install the include files
includedir = ${prefix}/include
install: install-shared install-archive pcap-config
         [ -d $(DESTDIR)$(libdir) ] || \
             (mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(libdir); chmod 755 $(DESTDIR)$(libdir))
         [ -d $(DESTDIR)$(includedir) ] || \
             (mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(includedir); chmod 755 $(DESTDIR)$(includedir))
         [ -d $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/pcap ] || \
             (mkdir -p $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/pcap; chmod 755 $(DESTDIR)$(includedir)/pcap)

Can you check your parameters for libpcap, specially the generated Makefile.


Thanks for clearing this up for me. I had not considered the "make install" step, and that the intent of the --with-libcap=/path configuration was for the case where libpcap's DESTDIR was not one of the system's search paths.

Now I can continue testing!
