Aha, thank you!  I assumed that the "latest CVS (>0.9.5)" meant "get a

Nope - 0.9.x releases are on a branch, not on the trunk.  The page  
*definitely* needed clarifying....
I'll build it from CVS and try again.
Note that, if you build and install, by default it'll install a non- 
shared library in /usr/local/lib, so, if you're building Wireshark  
from source, you'd have to re-run the configure script on Wireshark at  
minimum (after doing a "make distclean"), and possibly even use --with- 
pcap=/usr/local to tell it to use the libpcap you've built rather than  
the one that comes with the system.
If you're using a binary package of Wireshark, you'd either have to  
build from source to get the new libpcap, or configure it to install  
in /usr/lib (use --prefix=/usr) and do "make shared" and "make install- 
shared" (which builds shared libraries on Linux and Darwin/OS X - it  
doesn't use libtool so it doesn't support shared libraries on many  
platforms).  I can't guarantee that replacing the shared libraries  
that come with the OS won't break other programs, however (it  
*shouldn't*, assuming whoever develops the Linux distribution you use  
didn't do anything stooopid, but...).
