problem compiling libnids1.18

libnids give the following error after ./configure :

checking for libnet... Working libnet not found; get it from and reinstall
configure: error: libnet
localhost libnids-1.18]#

even though i have downloaded and installed libnet from packetfactory. I get no error messages during the install process for libnet.

the config.log for libnet:

localhost Libnet-latest]# more config.log
