I don't see "mergecap" anywhere in the "make" output - it looks as if it's
trying to link Ethereal.

The configure script appears not to have determined that libpcap requires
-lsocket, although it did figure out that it needs -lnsl.

Could you send the config.log file from the top-level source directory?
