And this would be libpcap.

Yes, you're right. I've compiled my own libpcap (on Red Hat 7.2 with
gcc3.0.4), Openssl (because of security warnings about older versions -
I'm now using 0.9.6g), Berkeley, Openldap 1.1.4, cyrus SASL etc. etc.
I've deliberately chosen to do this for all "network" stuff, though I
use rpms for *many* other things. Choosing to compile basic network
stuff comes from an earlier existence as SCO sysadmin, when what you got
from SCO was years out of date and was never updated.

Ask rpm what it has for openssl and libpcap ('rpm -qa | grep openssl'
and the same for libpcap. Install them from your install CD if you don't
have them.

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
