Darwin 7.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 7.8.0: Wed Dec 22 14:26:17 PST 2004; root:xnu/xnu-517.11.1.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC  Power Macintosh powerpc
ethereal (the GUI binary) fails to build because of various configure
problems in locating current gtk and glib versions.
cd pkgsrc/net/ethereal; bmake
1) in configure, check for glib existence before gtk+. This way
GTK_LIBS _might_ contain GLIB_LIBS before they are needed when linking
the GTK test program. (Now the test program link fails due to an
unsatisfied glib dependency.)

2) in configure, do not require glib-config in order to detect glib,
as glib2-2.6.4 no longer installs one. Trust pkg-config. (Now glib
detection fails as glib-config is not found.)

Portable (GNU)makefiles instead of autoconf?
