Heh, are you running this on Fedora Core 3?  I had the same problem --
basically, syslog-ng wants to link against a statically linked
libpcap, but your system doesn't provide it.  You need to do some
tweaking of ordering of the libraries in configure.in to link against
it dynamically.  I can send you a patch when I get back to work
