So that would be Ubuntu 8.10 in /usr/bin/ and
/usr/lib/, and then something else in /usr/local/
If you are just practicing compiling it's OK, but
I'd suggest removing the /usr/local/ stuff after
you have seen it installing, and use 'synaptic'
or 'apt-get install <package>' to get some of the
28000 Ubuntu packages.
Then you will have a chance to build a few things
not available from the package manager.
The basic developing packages installs with :
'apt-get install build-essential' , and libpcap :
'apt-get install libpcap0.8-dev'
Also have a look at the "Search" function in Synaptic
to get the actual Ubuntu package name.
'm4' : use the Ubuntu package instead of building
it yourself. The same for flex and bison.
EDIT : 'apt-get install ...' must be
'sudo apt-get install ....' in Ubuntu.
