darwinports has ngrep, so it's possible to run on darwin. It'd be great to have this tool working.

Reproducible: Always

Need to figure out how to "trick" it or something. Not sure though, ngrep doesn't even install the file itself. And macports uses the same configure options as we do...

the sources don't reference this file, neither does libpcap do.
