The package mingw32-pcap hasn't been ported yet to the new cross
compiler framework. I only ported the most important packages and
published a porting guide [1] to get things started. The porting guide
isn't entirely up to date anymore, but I'll try to update it later
tonight. Right now I'm preparing a new set of packages which uses the
latest GCC 4.6 snapshot and contains various other package updates.

It would be great if people are willing to help out with porting
packages. I can give people commit rights if necessary.

Your second question can better be directed to the package maintainer in
question (bugzilla?). The new i686-w64-mingw32 version uses the same
file locations as the current fedora mingw32-wpcap package so there
shouldn't be any differences between the two packages (other than the
'i686-pc' vs 'i686-w64' prefix). The only changes I applied in the
package are [2] and [3].
