assuming your ports tree is current (if not, do a man portsnap and use
that), you just need to:
# cd /usr/ports/net/ethereal
# make install;make clean
then wait for the build to commence. you are still building from source,
so it has the cool factor, its just that the port will handle all the
dependencies for you.
if you arent sure what the ports tree is, check out the handbook.
