configure fix for tcpdump-3.8.3

Certain configure checks in tcpdump may pass when they really 
shouldn't, which leads to the compile failing because it links 
with symbols the configure script mistakenly thought were there 
(pcap_debug and yydebug are the two major offending symbols).  
We have gcc's new tricksy optimizations to thank for that.

A similar fix is already in tcpdump-cvs.

"If a server crashes in a server farm and no one pings it, does 
it still cost four figures to fix?"
