As you've said, e2fsprogs is the port that conflicts with kerberos5, not ext2fuse. So yes, you could (forcibly) deactivate e2fsprogs, then upgrade wireshark (which will activate kerberos5).

If you wish, you can then later deactivate kerberos5 and re-activate e2fsprogs, in order to make ext2fuse work again. However, doing so will remove the kerberos5 libraries, which will make wireshark fail to work.
