	What OS and a listing of the failure would both be useful. That said
as I recall the problem in the other case was the copy of bpf.h in 
argus-clients-2.0.6.fixes.1/include/net/bpf.c was old. I think either removing
it and letting it find the system one or replacing it with the system copy was
what fixed the other person. One of the later libpcaps also changed the name
of this file as I recall in which case a symlink fixes it.
