I did it, thanks a lot.
gtk2-devel*.rpm has not been installed at that moment.
maybe wireshark needs to update the user guide for glib 2.X and gtk2, :)

Do you have GTK+ installed, including any developer package for GTK+?

If not, you can't build Wireshark, you can only build TShark.  For
better or worse, Wireshark uses GTK+, not Qt, as its graphical toolkit,
so merely installing KDE, including KDE developer packages, is *NOT*
sufficient to allow Wireshark to be built - just as, for example, it's
not sufficient to allow the GIMP, or Nautilus, or Evolution, or any
*other* GTK+ program to be built.

(That's a disadvantage of the diversity of GUI toolkits in X11; any
given desktop environment might not be sufficient to run all GUI
applications, and any given desktop environment's developer packages
might not be sufficient to build all GUI applications.)
