Angry Installation of HoneyD on Fc3

I am a masters student and am trying to install HoneyD for a term project. Before installing that, I had to install arpd and 3 libraries. The three libraries are libdnet, libpcap and libevent. I got the latest tar files and untared them and compiled them. I could not run any files 'cos I could not find any executables. So i got binaries for libevent and libdnet and intalled them.
When I tried to install Arpd (prerequisite to HoneyD) it worked fine and it was running. And then I tried to install HoneyD it says is not found. I could not find any binaries for libpcap for fc3. What am I doing wrong. I searched for a executable by name libpcap* every where including the /usr/local/bin folder. I could not find any. Can any one help me with this. Thanks.

Best Regards,
Naivn Albert

You propably have to make symlinks in your lib directories so that HoneyD can find them. If there's pkgconfig file (libcap*.pc) you should ensure that copy of it is located at least /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig and /usr/lib/pkgconfig

I'm propably quite as confused about those as you but I've managed solving depency problems on my FC2 x86_64 box when compiling by copying the .pc files of needed libraries to /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/

That directiry is ofcourse found in 64bit distro only so you have to find right location by yourself...
