Whenever I try to configure Nemesis it stops at "checking libnet version....no" and claims I have the wrong version. I have checked my libnet folder to make sure, and I do have the right version. Version 1.0.2a. So why is it believing that I have the wrong version?

Configuration session:

Guide I followed exactly - http://insecurety.net/?p=54

After more attempts, the guide stops at "checking for libnet.h" instead of checking the version. I have checked where it is talking about and yes there is a libnet.h file in it.

config.log extracts (full text: http://pastebin.com/dgb4BjBq):

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --with-libnet-includes=/usr/nembuild/Libnet-1.0.2a/include --with-libnet-libraries=/usr/nembuild/Libnet-1.0.2a/lib

Tell us exactly where you got the source code, how you installed libnet, the full transcript of the configure session and the content of config.log. –  Gilles Oct 3 '12 at 23:14
    
Please post what you did to fix the compilation as an answer. Include the transcripts and log files directly in your post if possible (like I did in your question, I had to leave the full config.log out because it was too long). –  Gilles Oct 4 '12 at 20:27
