Pcap

I want to install tcpdump and wireshark on my mac. Both of these programs require Pcap to be already installed.

I don't think I've installed Pcap however I already have nmap working which also requires Pcap. I'm not sure if Pcap is built in to the nmap code or whether building nmap also installed pcap on my system.

Is there an easy way to check if you have Pcap installed or do I just go ahead and build tcpdump and wireshark?

Try to build it. You'll get your errors soon enough.

Alternatively, run 'ldd <program>' and it will tell you which libraries it (tries) to load, and where the on the system these libraries are found.

Okay, I tried building it but it requires gtk+

I installed gtk+os x but apparently the version of glib is not a high enough version. I'm also missing pkg-config.

Has anyone actually built wireshark on a mac?

I have, it worked fine, I also have tcpdump and vomit running on it.
