 This ticket was created in order to make several requests/comments
 regarding/about the current wireshark port:

 1) Wireshark 1.6.x should be build by default with the following options:

  * IPv6 [[BR]]
    Pv6 networks are more common nowadays; and its numbers are expected to
 increase due to the recent exhaustion of the IPv4 address space; also, all
 recent MacOSX versions are IPv6 aware

  * libgcrypt [[BR]]
    Needed by the ipsec support; also needed by capinfos to calculate the
 pcap files hashes (MD5, SHA1, ...)

  * libsmi [[BR]]
    Enables wireshark to access SMI MIB module definitions (SNMP related)

 2) The following variants are missing:

  * geoip
  * gtk3 (experimental) [[BR]]

 3) The bzip2 requirement appears to be bogus.

 4) Wireshark builds with lua and c-ares support even if the variants
 aren't specified (lua and c-ares need to be installed in the building

 Note: some of these requests had already been applied to the wireshark-
 devel Portfile (see #29968)
