Thanks VERY much, Vin, for your help! In addition to your modified test.pl, for the benefit of others here are the minor patches to apply to Net-Pcap-0.17 to get it to compile correctly. Strangely, I did not have to redo step 4 like you had to.

Apply these patches with the same command line option '-p1' as in Vin's original post:

patch -p1 < net-pcap-0.17-makefile.patch patch -p1 < net-pcap-0.17-stubs.patch
Here is net-pcap-0.17-makefile.patch:
--- a/Makefile.PL Wed Apr 24 21:16:02 2013 +++ b/Makefile.PL Fri Apr 26 23:00:40 2013 @@ -296,7 +296,7 @@ $has_Win32 = !$@; $is_Win32 = ($^O eq 'MSWin32'); if ($is_Win32) { - $DEVNULL = 'DEVNULL'; + $DEVNULL = 'NUL:'; } else { $DEVNULL = eval { File::Spec->devnull }; if ($@) { $DEVNULL = '/dev/null' }
And net-pcap-0.17-stubs.patch:
