Comment:
> What's the point of making this a build option?

There are a whole lot of optional output plugins apart from pcap (pgsql, mysql, sqlite, etc), and it doesn't always makes sense to support everything. It is conceivable that some people may not even want to have pcap as a dependency in their systems.

So irrespective of what the default build options may be, it's always good to give more flexibility to the build files so that people that care about having packages with minimal dependencies can do so.
