I assume this is due to the request from Tor Lillqvist on the GTK list
to drop support for those platforms in upcoming GTK releases. 

I am all for moving to GTK > 2.8 and drop any platform that isn't
supported by it. 

A question; would the text-only version still work ? If not could win98
still use tcpdump and capture stuff on a win9x machine but than do the
dissecting with a Wireshark on a real OS ? "Solutions" like that might
make it less painful for those poor souls still stuck with those old
platforms :-)
