If built with the GnuTLS library, Wireshark can also decrypt SSL/TLS sessions; if you're building with autoconf, and the system on which you're building Wireshark has a GnuTLS that Wireshark can use, the configure script will, unless you explicitly tell it *not* to build with that library, build with it.

The only precompiled binaries we offer are for Windows and Mac OS X; the Windows 32-bit and 64-bit builds appear to include the GnuTLS library, as does the 32-bit x86 OS X build for Leopard - I can't tell how the 64-bit x86 OS X build for Snow Leopard or the 32-bit PowerPC OS X build for Leopard are done from the 1.6 buildbot, but I suspect they're also done with the GnuTLS library.  If you have an OS other than Windows or Mac OS X, your precompiled binary came from somewhere else; you'd have to check whether there are any precompiled binaries for those platforms where Wireshark is built with GnuTLS if you want to be able to decrypt SSL sessions.
