In regards to my previous mail (about working on libpcap), the given
patches do NOT work directly. However, I can rewrite them to give same
functionality and make them work.

You should ignore the diffs in libpcap/NMAP_MODIFICATIONS and take
a look at the official libpcap git-repo [1] itself. Then you'll see the diffs
are much larger. A simple check done here now (run diff from nmap's base):

 diff -r  -u3 libpcap g:\MingW32\src\inet\nmap\libpcap | wc -n
29004   << !!   But this includes the generated Yacc/Lex files.

Anyway, good luck.
