Is there any way to reliably stop wireshark (without messing with the
Portfile) from keeping on getting the zlib 1.2.4 release even though
I've deactivated it and activated the zlib 1.2.3 release? I've even
gone so far as to uninstall zlib 1.2.4 when MacPorts wasn't ignoring
the inactive zlib 1.2.4.
I've tried deactivating, cleaning (with --dist) and then uinstalling
zlib 1.2.4 prior to deactivating, cleaning, uninstalling and then
installing wireshark but when I re-install wireshark, it keeps on
pulling in the zlib 1.2.4 package. What I've had to do to get it to
use the zlib 1.2.3 package is to start an install of wireshark going,
wait till it's done installing the zlib 1.2.4 package and going onto
something else before using another window to quickly uninstall zlib
1.2.4 and install zlib 1.2.3 while wireshark is being built in the
other window but this seems a very dangerous and Rube Goldberg-like
maneuver to me.
