In case it wasn't clear, I previously ran ./configure --with-gtk2
--without-gtk3 --without-qt && make rpm-package, but that did not do the 
trick.

Thanks for the link.  Yes, I was mistaken in my understanding of these
macros, but since I explicitly specified the configure options for gtk2,
gtk3 and qt, I don't think it mattered.  Well, I restored wireshark.spec.in
to its original state and tried again with the same negative results as 
before:

./configure --with-gtk2 && make rpm-package

...
