PCAP/PCAPNG: Be consistent in documentation, etc
1) The default build configuration is to select PCAPNG as output format, but it can be selected as PCAP. Some of the command line tools have the option to select the output format and default towards the build configuration. This has to be reflected in their help output also. 2) Various documentation files are still stating that PCAP is the default format of various tools. With the default build configuration being PCAPNG these have to be adjusted as well. (with lack of dynamic content the documentation can only refer to the default build configuration format).
