Where can I find the actual source code to download in order to build the latest version of wireshark using RHEL5?

We are moving system to RHEL5 (RHEL5.5 specifically), and yes, RHEL5.5 has included version wireshark-1.0.8-1.el5_3.1. But, is this the equivalent to latest version 1.4.2? Since 1.3.4 and higher, there are several updates include that supports HNBAP and RUA Protocols. Not sure if support is included in RHEL5 version. Reason to at least be able to build with latest source code version in RHEL5.

In addition (other than attempting to build), where can I obtain a list of dependency binary files supporting wireshark releases?

By the way, need to build using RHEL5.5 for 64-bit x86_64.

Please advise.
