Much appreciated.

To work on tcpdump/libpcap you don't need any specialized tools. Basic
tools like code editor (vim, emacs), C compiler, GNU Make and GNU
autotools are pretty much all you need. SCM we use is git. You can find
current master branches of tcpdump and libpcap here,

Changes are committed to your own fork on GitHub and once you are happy
with your patch you can submit Pull Request. If you are new to GitHub
here is the link where you can read how does the basic workflow looks like.
