I built 2.6.4 (trying to recreate some issue) on a pi:

Hardware        : BCM2835
Revision        : a22082
Serial          : 00000000c73d07a3
Model           : Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2
  1. 3.4. Obtaining The Wireshark Sources - the easiest way is to download the tarball (step 3.4.3)
  2. Extract then head to the tools directory and look for tools/debian-setup.sh
    (see 2.1. UNIX: Installation and Build Instructions) It will try to pull in the dependencies needed for the build.
  3. 2.1.2. Building - first time I tried ninja which overloaded the pi. Redid the build with make and it completed. Don't use ninja on the pi

People have asked about just building tshark but so much of the Wireshark build is libraries and dissectors shared by tshark and wireshark that there isn't much saved by not building the gui part.
