I don't run it, I just built it long enough to check for you.

I used the default configurations:
# This file is auto-generated by 'make config'.

# Options for wireshark-0.99.8_2

The key clue is probably in what provides that library.  Which is
Heimdal, so that *should* provide the library.  

Did you install wireshark from a package?  That may have been built
with a different set of options and/or for a different FreeBSD release.
