Thanks for the recommendations, I'm going to get it installed and play
with it as everyone seems to be saying that it is worth it.

I'm running ArchLinux distro and I'm fairly new to it so dsniff may be
there somewhere but not in the basic repositories and I haven't got
round to working out how to use others so I'll install from source and
do a static build against the older libraries.

Just another recommendation: You may have to remove one of the hton
lines in dnsspoof to work properly with hostfiles. I ran into problems
on gentoo and debian. On gentoo fixing the source worked well, on
debian I had the same problems you had (old libs required).
Sorry for not posting a patch - I don't have it ready to hand, but the
specific line is not hard to find.
