nmap 5.21 Compile on OpenSolaris
By user9148476 on Feb 23, 2010
$ ac_cv_dnet_linux_pf_packet=no ./configure \\ --with-libpcap=/usr \\ --with-libpcre=/usr $ make $ pfexec make installThis assumes you already have the libpcap and libpcre packages installed. You can check with:
$ pkg list |egrep "pcap|pcre" library/pcre 7.8-0.133 installed ----- system/library/libpcap 1.0.0-0.133 installed -----
Alas, there are still issues lingering with later versions of nmap on OpenSolaris. See this networking-discuss thread as well as this (yet unanswered) nmap-dev posting. In the latter, it's suggested that non-root scans have better success - that's been my experience thus far. The obvious downside being scans needing raw Ethernet access can't be used (or use the --unprivileged option to nmap).
