I emailed in with my problem before... the error was based on
comparison always being true... A colleague of mine (C developer
solved the problem) one that you may encounter in other cases.

In the parse_args function... ch in defined as a char, in order to
compile properly, we had to define char as an int.

My gcc version that this had to be done for:

Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.0.3 (Ubuntu 4.0.3-1ubuntu5)

Now it runs... However I ran into an interesting error... I connected
to ssh while dnscap was running... the following occured:
