Eh? It's part of the tcpdump source package.

$ rpm -qil libpcap

Does anyone here have any idea why Redhat does not seem to have their
own rpm package for libpcap and libpcap devel? As I recall, last time I
did anything with it I had to get a Mandrake source rpm and rebuild.
Redhat seems to resist libpcap (which is needed for a number of network
analysis tools).
