Hi, I'm wondering if you could offer and advice. This is probably a
simple problem, but I am trying to install tcptrace on my sun blade with
solaris 8 on it and at first it gave me issues because i didn't have
pcap installed. So reading the INSTALL file i noticed :-

" If you don't HAVE this package and don't CARE about it, then comment
  "GROK_TCPDUMP" out of and we'll just skip it in the

So i did this, but still get errors in compliation :-

 netm.o output.o plotter.o print.o rexmit.o snoop.o nlanr.o tcpdump.o
tcptrace.o thruput.o trace.o ipv6.o filt_scanner.o filt_parser.o
filter.o udp.o ns.o netscout.o version.o pool.o poolaccess.o dstring.o
mod_http.o mod_traffic.o mod_rttgraph.o mod_tcplib.o mod_collie.o
mod_slice.o mod_realtime.o dyncounter.o -o tcptrace -lsocket -lnsl -lm
ld: fatal: library -lpcap: not found
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to tcptrace
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `tcptrace'

Am i doing something wrong, or do i need to remove any trace/entry of
pcap from all makefiles etc before i do this?
ps. it is the latest version of tcptrace on your download site that I am
trying to compile.
