yes, this is true.
It is because of the need to minimize differences between libpcap and

In order to use the new functions, you must define the HAVE_REMOTE constant

This choice has been made after several discussions within the WinPcap team,
because earlier version of WinPcap defined this constant automatically.
However there were some issue related to libpcap compatibility, therefore we
decided to switch this on manually.
