 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.
