Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attempt to install package on machine without gtk-1.2
Actual Results: Fails due to missing dependencies.
Expected Results: Should have installed.

of the packages, there should be a BuildRequires: gtk+-devel >= 1.2.
The dependency on usermode also needlessly ties this RPM to X11.
The build also fails because it depends on a function present in the updated

Requires: usermode >= 1.37
Requires: ucd-snmp >= 4.2.5
BuildRequires: openssl-devel >= 4.2.5
BuildRequires: gtk+-devel >= 1.2

Will be handled in the next upcoming ethereal errata for 7.x and 6.2
