I had already diagnosed the error. But here goes:

# cd /opt/metasploit-framework/external/pcaprub
bash: cd: /opt/metasploit-framework/external/pcaprub:
No such file or directory

# ruby extconf.rb && sudo make && sudo make install
ruby: No such file or directory -- extconf.rb (LoadError)

Me too. Sometimes though I am broken down and have to ask for help.
Just Google It -- the new RTFM. I love the looks on customer's
faces when I research a problem and fix it right in fron of their
faces. Their remark is usually yhay they could have never done that
themselves in a 100 years. They shake their heads a lot.

Dude! You are a genius! Thank you!!

# find / -iname extconf.rb

# cd /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/pcaprub-0.11.3/ext/pcaprub

# ruby extconf.rb && sudo make && sudo make install

I wonder if Dark Operator would react badly if I eMailed him

get most everythng going, as you said, with google. A few
questions too. This was my last hurdle.
