Hi Alan,
   I'm getting a make error. I tried ./configure --without-radsniff but 
still the same... Is there a switch to disable building radsniff or do I 
have to get the PCAP libraries :(

./configure && make


.libs/radsniff.o(.text+0xd76): In function `main':
undefined reference to `pcap_dump_fopen'
undefined reference to `pcap_fopen_offline'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[4]: *** [radsniff] Error 1
gmake[4]: Leaving directory 
gmake[3]: *** [main] Error 2

gmake[2]: *** [all] Error 2
