I don't know about port mirroring, but Etthercap supports switched LAN.

Well if you're sniffing on the "mirror" or "span" port, then you can use any sniffer placed in promiscuous mode. If you're not plugged into the span port, than it's irrelevant that spanning even exists and you just treat it like a regular switch. For that you would need Ettercap.
