Hello Chris,

I committed changes for supporting vlan.

Please check out the source code and compile to use vlan enabled softflowd.

If you want to use vlanid on NetFlow v9,
please use configure option "./configure --enable-nf9-vlan" before "make".
And please use "softflowd -T vlan" (tracking level:vlan) option when you 
use softflowd.

If you want to use vlanid on IPFIX,
Just use "softflowd -T vlan". (It doesn't need "./configure
