> Fedora 18 has many packages that depend on 'libnl3'. My Fedora 18 development system has libraries for both 'libnl1' and 'libnl3'. So i used this simple sed one-liner in my RPM build spec to force the use of 'libnl1' in "configure" prior to running configure:

Many distributions ONLY ship libnl3. Disabling it is not an option.

The real solution is libpcap needs to update to a modern version.
