That's weird...
I don't see anything wrong in my build...
the file capture_loop.c:857 calls pcap_freecode with a struct bpf_program *, and the libpcap API expects exactly that:
/usr/include/pcap.h:193
    void    pcap_freecode(struct bpf_program *);

Can you double check that's true also for your build environment?
Are you sure you don't have another libpcap installed that overwritten your original libpcap?
(can you check if /usr/include/pcap.h declares pcap_freecode as above?)

I have libpcap-0.8.3-10.RHEL4 installed. The entry does popup twice if
that matters:

$ rpm -qa | grep pcap
libpcap-0.8.3-10.RHEL4
libpcap-0.8.3-10.RHEL4

Thanks again,
Andrew

This sounds like a problem with libpcap.
I was able to build successfully on my system (RHEL4).
I have libpcap version 0.8.3-10.RHEL4:
What is your output of:
# rpm -qa | grep pcap

?

Thanks for the feedbak! I reran configure with
--disable-warnings-as-errors and the 'make' continued much farther
than before. However, it still failed (after ~20 minutes of
compiling) with:

capture_loop.c: In function 'capture_loop_init_filter':

Any ideas how to remedy this. Thanks again in advance.

    Do:

    ./configure --disable-warnings-as-errors

    and redo the make.
