either you're not running a recent version of kismet (and any version older than the version on the download page is out of date, i don't care what your distro says), you're not on linux, or something went wrong during configure, in which case configure would have told you what is missing and not built pcap support.

If you aren't using linux, read the readme for bsd support.
