While running the './configure' command in 'work' directory I get the following error.

any ideas about what might be causing the error?

checking for gethostbyname... yes
checking for socket... yes
checking for putmsg in -lstr... no
checking for local pcap library... not found
checking for pcap_open_live in -lpcap... no
