well you have dependencies... install them.

In actual fact, redhat comes with wireshark, I wouldn't recommend going and getting it yourself unless that are fixes / features in the very newest version you need. just run "yum install wireshark-gnome" instead (assuming you're using rhel5) if it's rhel4 or earlier, install from the installation media.
