My version was to keep current strict dependency on libnl by default,
so if there is no libnl then
netsniff-ng & trafgen will be removed from build list, but make
possible to skip this
rule by --disable-libnl option. Now I am not sure there is a reason
for --disable-libnl as if there is no libnl
then netsniff-ng & trafgen will be added to build list, and will be
compiled w/o libnl dependency..

So does --disable-libnl makes sense ?
