Re: pkg/47943 (recent update to libpcap breaks tcpdump, nmap and wireshark on Solaris)

Let me also address the PR first, I will probably comment on the more general issues later.

  - I am reliant on users of older releases to point out where we have
    broken things and to help us to resolve these problems.  "You broke it,
    you fix it" is not helpful as I do not have the means necessary to fix

I was not talking to you, but to Adam, because I was under the impression he committed these changes.

I confess to being confused now.  Originally the problem was described to
be missing symbols which may or may not be caused by the removal of
dlpisubs.c, however the latest update says that the only changes you have
made are for manual pages.

In reply to Adam's mail I have sent my version of patches/patch-configure, which only reverts his(?) removal of


Everything else he/you have changed is okay.

Please can you provide the full patch which works for you, I will verify
it on SmartOS, and if it looks good will commit it.

I have a hard time believing that

- requesting '--with-pcap=dlpi' in Makefile

- removing dlpisubs.c in configure

at the same time has ever worked in SmartOS. NB: The package builds just fine, it's the dependencies that don't compile any longer.
