When I was working with Android 4 it definitely did not provide pcap of any
sort, neither the header nor the library.  I decided it was easiest to
compile libpcap as a static library and link it into the binaries.

The Android NDK only provides very basic libraries - static versions of
libc, libm, libz, and libstdc++.  What any particular device has available
at runtime is another question entirely.
