No, it isn't, and shouldn't. Kismet-PTW is a server plugin, not a client plugin, it should be installed to /usr/local/lib/lismet/ or ~/.kismet/plugins

> No, my real question, I am getting "Error: Failed to find panel_plugin_init function in plugin /usr/local/lib/kismet_client/aircrack" with a brand new compile. I don't see anything that should be holding me back so I am looking for advice.

You put a server plugin in the client plugin directory - it doesn't have the client plugin functions, since it isn't one, so it can't be loaded.

Kismet-PTW is purely server-side. There is nothing to configure & no UI. Once it gets enough data, it tries. If it succeeds, you'll get an alert (and if you're running from SVN you'll get a network tag as well)
