Where is the file?
Code:
slocate libpcap.so.0.8.3
/usr/locale/lib ?

If yes then redo this:
make clean
./configure --sysconfdir=/etc/ --prefix=/usr/
make
make install

You were quicker than me. This old version doesn't seem to generate shared lib, then do it manually
Code:
./configure
make
ld -shared -o libpcap.so.0.8.3 *.o
mv libcap.so.0.8.3 /usr/lib
ldconfig

Sorry!
Actual information is I want to setup VPN server on linux (Redhat 9). This pakage needs libpcap.so.0.8.3. I downloaded the same from tcpdump.org. and done the following
./configure
make
make install

After this use modprobe to libpcap it shows the older version which is not useful to me..

Also I was tried
./configure
make
ld -shared -o libpcap.so.0.8.3 *.o
mv libcap.so.0.8.3 /usr/lib
ldconfig
But this even not changed the modprobe output.
Hope this is enough information if not tell me what else information u want..........
