You appear to have an old version of the pcap library. 

This module need a recent version of the pcap library in order to provide 
access to all its features. You can still compile it with your old pcap 
library but some functions won't be available, and trying to use them in 
Perl programs will generate errors. Programs only using the old functions 
should perform as previously. If not, don't hesitate to fill a bug. 

You can get the latest sources of the pcap library at http://www.tcpdump.org/

If you install the pcap library using a system package, make sure to also 
install the corresponding -devel package, which contains the C headers needed 
to compile this module.

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

So did you?
