Thanks for the clarify.  The only thing I can think if is that the version
of tcpdump in FreeBSD varies from the output that tcptrace is expecting.
You might check the tcptrace docs and see if it requires certain flags.
Also, make sure file 'foo' actually has valid data, perhaps you forgot to
compile in bpf and the error is going into the file and not to the
console. :)
