+On first sight, it seems that Mac OS X 10.3.2 ships with a weird version of
+libpcap that includes pcap_findalldevs, but no definition for pcap_if_t.
+As it turns out, this isn't true. 10.3.2 ships with an 0.6[.x]-derived
+libpcap that doesn't include "pcap_findalldevs()". The problem is caused
+by a Security Update - it updates the libpcap dylib to 0.8.1, but doesn't
+update the header files (or the man page - and also doesn't update the
+tcpdump man page to 3.8.1). As a workaround, install pcap.h, pcap-bpf.h
+and pcap-stdinc.h from libpcap 0.8.1 in "/usr/include".
