libpcap error

I am trying to install snort- on Redhat 6.3 i386 but am getting the
following error

ERROR!  Libpcap library/headers (libpcap.a (or .so)/pcap.h)
   not found, go get it from http://www.tcpdump.org
   or use the --with-libpcap-* options, if you have it installed
   in unusual place.  Also check if your libpcap depends on another
   shared library that may be installed in an unusual place

I have uninstalled the redhat libpcap and compiled my own libpcap 1.4.0. I
have tried running configure with --with-libpcap-includes=/usr/local/lib
switch and also adding /usr/local/lib to ldconfig.

The following files are located in /usr/local/lib
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 754998 Jun 27 08:14 libpcap.a
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root     12 Jun 27 08:14 libpcap.so -> libpcap.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root     16 Jun 27 08:14 libpcap.so.1 -> libpcap.so.1.4.0
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 552966 Jun 27 08:14 libpcap.so.1.4.0

Yet Im still getting the libpcap error and I dont know why.

Thank you
