Your welcome!  I have no idea why 1.1.x was installed but I'm glad it's
working for you now.  A few years ago I hacked dsniff to work with newer
versions of libnet.  It compiles and the sniffing works, but any of the
programs that require libnet (macof, arpspoof, etc) core dump.  I never
bother to use those programs so I didn't really care - I just wanted a
package that would at least build and allow me to sniff.  If I still
have the drive handy I might be able to tar it up and send it to you if
you find you absolutely must have libnet 1.1.x and dsniff running.
