    I'm trying to install in F14, 64bits. Snorts need libpcap
version(libpcap.1.0) >= 1. As far as I know Yum repositories do not have
it. Just libpcap version < 1. (libpcap.0.84)

  I also have tried a simply ./configure* (without anything) then a make
and make install but again no results.

*I guess it would put the files on /usr/lib
