And all this time, *this* is the actual error that is breaking the build.
Not the warnings; they are just that - only warnings.  But this is
a real problem.

Unfortunately, I cannot right now understand why this would break;
it seems to be somehow related to a HAVE_PCAP_FINDALLDEVS define.
For some reason, the Makefile.PL configuration stage did not detect
the pcap_findalldevs() function in your pcap library.  Can you post
the contents of the Makefile in the Net-Pcap-0.15/ work directory?
