mandrake 10.1 can't seem to install ipfm

Hi guys

I am trying to install ipfm. When I run ./configure the output I get is as follows

Configuring ipfm 0.11.5...

checking for uname... uname
checking your OS... Linux
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for flex... lex
checking for yywrap in -ll... no
checking for ranlib... ranlib
checking for bison... no
checking for byacc... no
checking for ar... /usr/bin/ar
checking for local libpcap... no
checking for main in -lpcap... no
configure: error: You need libpcap in order to use ipfm

then to see if libpcap is installed I ran
>>rpm -qa libpcap*
and this is the output

I don't understand why it doesn't pickup that it is installed

can someone please help me ??

perhaps you could try downloading the libpcap source and compiling it. Don't know what to say, except maybe the mandrake libpcap is messed up.

The chances are you need the development package for libpcap, which will probably be called libpcap0-0.8.3-2mdk-devel
