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.
