You can enable focus follow mouse for X11. This way, you won't have
to click on a window to give it focus.
defaults write com.apple.x11 wm_ffm -bool true

Yes, I fixed the problem you mentioned and I recompiled wireshark
with gtk2 +quartz. The result is very far from being usable. You may
have seen this warning if you installed with verbose output:
*** The Quartz backend is still under active development and

This is very true, all you get is a preview but nothing really
usable! I uninstalled gtk2 + quartz, installed the x11 version and
recompiled wireshark so that I can use it.
If your only concern is the focus follow mouse problem then I
strongly advise to use the x11 preferences solution.
