The git clone of libpcap and the git clone of tcpdump are supposed to
be next to each other, not one inside the other.  Also the libpcap
directory must be named "libpcap" because tcpdump build process is
checking in ../libpcap for the "local" libpcap.  If the check is
unsuccessful, tcpdump tries to build with the "system" libpcap.
