Firstly. Do you have the latest ports tree?
secondly are you running this as root (or via sudo)
secondly, what options did you choose when you ran 'make install clean'
  ie. i'm guessing you choose ports pcap.
'cd /usr/ports/net/ngrep && make '
myself gives

so you need /usr/local/lib/libpcap.a
and the port for this is /usr/ports/net/libpcap

I suggest you update your ports tree (cvsup or portsnap as you prefer)
and try again, otherwise choose base libpcap.

which could have hindered troubleshooting)
