I don't see this mentioned in the Developers Guide. Can you please raise an item at the Wireshark Bugzilla so it get's fixed?

@grahamb , Why do we need to install QT in order to build the wireshark as per the developer's guide ?

Wireshark is moving from being a GTK based application to a QT based application. See Gerald's blog post for more info.

During the transition the build environment is set to build both GTK and QT versions. Once the QT version is feature compatible with the GTK version then it's likely we'll start to deprecate the GTK version.
