New securityonion-capme package checks for active pcap_agent

I've updated the securityonion-capme package to check for active pcap_agents.  This will provide a more helpful error message for folks who forgot to enable netsniff-ng and pcap_agent and then tried to pivot to CapMe for full packet capture.

The updated package version is securityonion-capme - 20121213-0ubuntu0securityonion18 and it has been tested by the following (thanks!):
