Version 0.99.7 is very old and no longer supported. I suggest trying to install a more modern version of Wireshark which you can find at the download page.

This is an issue of the FreeBSD port system, not Wireshark; the FreeBSD port maintainers maintain the ports.

As Using the Ports Collection says, "Warning: Before installing any port, you should be sure to have an up-to-date Ports Collection and you should check http://vuxml.freebsd.org/ for security issues related to your port." Make sure your Ports Collection is up to date - as Chris Maynard notes, Wireshark 0.99.7 is a very old release.

You might want to check out the freebsd-questions mailing list.
