Hmm, well I think there's still plenty of good, related information and examples worth reading in the tcpdump man page, so I'd be more inclined to just leave the reference to tcpdump there.

| pcap(3), wireshark(1), mergecap(1), editcap(1), tshark(1), dumpcap(1), 
| pcap-filter(7) or tcpdump(8) if it doesn't exist

This is from the times when pcap-filter was not a standalone manpage, or to be more precise from the time when I made pcap-filter a separate manpage that is part of libpcap instead of tcpdump.
For those using an old version of libpcap I added that option. If you remote that phrase, maybe also remote the " or tcpdump(8)" as well?

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
