The solution to this problem was that libpcap-dev is required to compile dumpcap.

As noted in the CMakeList.txt file: "Dumpcap was requested but libpcap dependency is not available. Wireshark will be built without packet capture capability."

This is (probably) part of the optional packages of wireshark. You can see a list of all optional packages that where NOT build at the end of the cmake command.

After installing libpcap-dev, I used sudo apt install libpcap-dev, make clean you build directory and recompile using cmake and make. Build info here:
