Thanks for doing this. You had forgotten to update the Config.in
comments in pinentry and wireshark, so I did that when applying to

Long term, I don't think those pinentry and wireshark options should
select the Qt5 package, it should probably "depends on" it. I believe
if you want the wireshark Qt GUI, it's pretty obvious that you need Qt.
