When I looked closer at the output from the config command I saw this

checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for pkghildon... Package hildon-1 was not found in the pkg-config search path
Package hildon-help was not found in the pkg-config search path
Package conic was not found in the pkg-config search path

I'm guessing the packages it complained about not finding are not critical because the configure completed without any more errors with the following output:

Configuration complete:
Compiling for: openbsd4.4 (zaurus)
C++ Library: stdc++
Installing as group: wheel
Man pages owned by: wheel
Installing into: /usr/local
Setuid capable: yes
Terminal Control: ncurses

Radiotap headers: yes

DBUS Integration: yes
Imagemagick support: no
Expat Library: yes

Configuration complete. You are not running a linux-based system,
you will likely need to use 'gmake' instead of 'make'.
Run 'gmake dep' to generate dependencies and 'gmake' followed by
'gmake install' to compile and install Kismet
Kismet WILL NOT be installed suid-root by default. If you wish to install
Kismet as a suid-root utility, READ THE DOCUMENTATION and run
'make suidinstall'.

I'll see if I can find the two packages configure complained about and try to compile them on the Zaurus.
