Which package contains sharkd?

On debian 10, sharkd is not installed by wireshark-common package.

~ $ dpkg -L wireshark-common  |grep sharkd
~ $

The only way I found to get it was building it from source:

git clone; cd wireshark; tools/; mkdir build; cd build; cmake -DBUILD_wireshark=OFF .. ; make ; ./run/sharkd

Then when I try to use sharkd, then I get an error:

~ $ temp/wireshark/build/run/sharkd -a tcp:
cannot initialize sharkd

Any help is appreciated.
