This isn't a Debian derivative and this isn't a Red Hat derivative.  (No,
not even all Linuxes divide those up.) wireshark-devel is an alpha release,
not a developer library --- and, while I haven't looked, it may well be the
*previous* alpha release.

Don't install wireshark-devel unless you really need that particular
Don't blindly trust Linux install instructions; OS X is BSDish, not
Linuxish. MacPorts is BSD ports/pkgsrc, not RPM, not APT; the closest Linux
equivalent is Gentoo portage.

Are you sure this include file has any relevance on non-Linux? For example,
Linux kernel drivers do you no good whatsoever on OS X and never will.
