Can't compile ppp CVS on mandrake 9.2


I am currently using rp-pppoe in user-mode to connect to the internet. For some reason it uses allot of cpu power, so I thought I'd configure it un kernel-mode. For doing so, I need to install the ppp CVS package from samba.org. It downloaded fine and I had no problem while running ./configure
But when I run ./make I get the following.
options.c
options.c:58:18: pcap.h: No such file or directory
In file included from options.c:59:
../include/pcap-int.h:39:18: pcap.h: No such file or directory
In file included from options.c:59:

options.c: At top level:
options.c:123: error: storage size of `pass_filter' isn't known

make[1]: *** [options.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/jp/ppp/pppd'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I really dont know what I should do to install it properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
