PCRE Regex Filters For Kismet On Backtrack Linux

One of the bits of functionality not installed by default on Backtrack 5 release 3 is the PCRE Regex Filters. You can easily enable this functionality by installing a single package before you run the kismet configure command when compiling the source.
