I have downloaded wireshark 0.99.4 code source to install it on debian 40r8, after installing the necessary gtk+, 
glib and libpcap, i ran ./configure but i have got :

The wireshark package have been configured with the following options
                            Build wireshark : no    // but i want to build it..
                                 Build tshark : yes
                               ........ etc

Then i ran make but i have got an error :

epan/;libs/libwireshark.so: undefined reference to 'g_string_sprintfa'

g_string_sprintfa() was renamed to g_string_append_printf() in some version of GLib; you're building an *ANCIENT* 
version of Wireshark, so it might not have been fixed to call g_string_append_printf(), and the version of GLib you 
have might have completely gotten rid of g_string_sprintfa().

Try using an up-to-date version of Wireshark.
