Is there a tool for Linux to easily produce graphs (histograms) of the packet sizes (e.g. TCP) of network traffic ?

(before I start putting together something using e.g. matplotlib and python bindings for libpcap, I'd better ask here...)

I believe that ntop reports a packet size histogram, among many other things.
