i've been compiling rarpd .. for a couple of days.. and its always the same error!
i'm getting crazy with this.. 'cause i dont know programming..
i 've been compiling rarp1.0 and 1.1,, just in case one was wrog.. but nop.. both give me the same error..
i 've previously compiled libnet and libpcap (just rarp1.1 needs this)
anyway... both of them apparently without mistake..
but when i compile rarp-- this is what happens:

root@dodo:/usr/local/src/rarpd-1.1# ./configure
checking for libnet library in /usr/ng/lib... not found
checking for libnet library in /usr/lib... not found
checking for libnet library in /usr/local/lib... not found

its not finding libnet libraries. and dispite i give it the option of where to find them.. ( ./configure --with-libnet-lib=/usr/lib ... which by the way is where it is looking.. ) same thing happens when i do a "make"

root@dodo:/usr/local/src/rarpd-1.1# make
rarpd.c: In function `send_rarpreply':
rarpd.c:289: `ARP_H' undeclared (first use in this function)
rarpd.c:289: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
rarpd.c:289: for each function it appears in.)
rarpd.c:289: `ETH_H' undeclared (first use in this function)
rarpd.c: In function `process_arp':
rarpd.c:334: structure has no member named `ar_sha'
rarpd.c:335: structure has no member named `ar_spa'
rarpd.c:336: structure has no member named `ar_tha'
rarpd.c:337: structure has no member named `ar_tpa'
rarpd.c: In function `main':
rarpd.c:449: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast
make: *** [rarpd.o] Error 1

AHHHHH!! i 'm getting crazy!!
'cause the libraries of libnet (libnet.a) are @/usr/lib/ and rarpd.c is loofing for them there.. but the same it says it doesnt find them!!

Recently i was some same sort of problem...And my method was ok sort of.
So here is what i did.
You have problems with libnet library right???It is installed but when you try to install rarp package it is not able to find the installed libnet library.

So what you can do can give links to all the libnet files (i mean .so and header files) in /usr/lib and /usr/include.I have successfully solved my problem using this method.But make sure you don't have any conflicts!!!!

And then for your rarp installation go ahead with configure,make,make install.

This should work.
