Ok cool. Just wanted to check that this wasn't *unexpected* fallout from 
the recent pcap import and that a conscious decision has been made to 
not include the system's bpf.h in pcap.h. Probably worth keeping an eye 
out on the ports build cluster for any other ports that look like 
they're failing to build because of bpf.h issues.
