Well, first you need to get a wireshark.spec file. When I went through this exercise recently I think I started with the CentOS 6 spec file (which you can get out of their SRPM--source rpm) and modified it until it could build a usable RPM with Wireshark (at the time) 1.8.0.
The actual building of the RPM is done by:
Yes, it's on my list to update Wireshark's .spec file (in packaging/rpm/SPECS/) so it's easier to use or more up to date or something.
(I'd give you my .spec file but it's got a lot of my private stuff in there which would probably cause more confusion than help. If I do get it cleaned up, I'll put it in Wireshark's repository.)
BTW, I'd suggest not using 1.8.0rc2: that's a Release Candidate. The current version is 1.8.2.
