Can you please post the appropriate changes to README.bsd to describe
what you did so other users can try that, too?
I have attached a patch for README.bsd that describes in more detail  
to compile and install Wireshark.
I've checked that in (with some additional material in the BPF section  
- it appears top-of-tree {Free,Net,Open}BSD all dynamically allocate  
BPF data structures on opens, so if they do cloning and/or have devfs,  
no configuration should be necessary as long as they all configure in  
BPF by default; I didn't see "pseudo-device bpf" in the top-of-tree  
GENERIC file for OpenBSD - did I miss something?).
It is geared toward compiling from a
distribution tarball - should I put the instructions or doing it from
SVN in there also (setting autoconf/make versions, running autogen,
gmake, etc.)?
No, that probably belongs in the Developer's Guide (most users won't  
be building from SVN).
