compile dsniff on current systems

For I contributed to this group on arp-spoofing a few hours ago I got
curious again and tried to install dsniff on my linuxlaptop.
Unfortunately I couldnt manage. dsniff is a bit outdated in the meantime
(last change in 2002) and it seems that it needs older versions of
libnet than 1.1.x cause dsniff fails with:

-I/usr/local/include     -I/usr/X11R6/include -I./missing -c ./arpspoof.c
arpspoof.c: In function `arp_send':
arpspoof.c:49: warning: passing arg 1 of `libnet_get_hwaddr' from
incompatible pointer type
arpspoof.c:49: error: too many arguments to function `libnet_get_hwaddr'
arpspoof.c:60: warning: passing arg 6 of `libnet_build_ethernet' from
incompatible pointer type
arpspoof.c:60: error: too few arguments to function `libnet_build_ethernet'
arpspoof.c:64: error: `ETH_H' undeclared (first use in this function)
arpspoof.c:64: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
arpspoof.c:64: error: for each function it appears in.)
arpspoof.c:64: error: too few arguments to function `libnet_build_arp'
arpspoof.c: In function `main':
arpspoof.c:181: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a
make: *** [arpspoof.o] Error 1

and the older versions of libnet do not compile on my system ...
For I'm sure some people out there use dsniff or a successor I seek
advice here.
- in what environment does your dsniff compile well?
- what other tool than dsniff do you use for playing with arpspoof?


ps: if anyone knows a recent article about the topic (including
sophisticated countermeasures) I would be happy to read ...



1. compiling dsniff-2.2

Hello all,

I'm trying to complile dsniff-2.2 but i don't get it compiled. When I
configure it stops whit the following error: checking for Berkeley DB with
1.85 compatability.... configure error:
Berkeley DB with 1.85 compability not found.

I downloaded Berkeley DB (all three versions) and configured this on the
following way: ../dist/configure --enable-compat185

Then I try to configure dsniff whit the following option to point to the
build directory of BerkeleyDB:
./configure --with-db=/usr/src/db-3.1.17/build_unix/ but I still receive the
same error!

I tryed a lot of things but still the same results. Can anyone help me? I'm
running redhat 7.0.
