When run with the --cflags option, pcap-config writes to the standard
output the -I compiler flags required to include libpcap's header
files. When run with the --libs option, pcap-config writes to the
standard output the -L and -l linker flags required to link with
libpcap, including -l flags for libraries required by libpcap. When
run with the --additional-libs option, pcap-config writes to the
standard output the -L and -l flags for libraries required by
libpcap, but not the -lpcap flag to link with libpcap itself.
By default, it writes flags appropriate for compiling with a
dynamically-linked version of libpcap; the --static flag causes it to
write flags appropriate for compiling with a statically-linked
version of libpcap.
