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

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

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.

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.
