Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] 'version' symbol collision between packet-tango and packet-mysql

While compiling 0.99.2 on Solaris 9, I noticed this warning:

/usr/ccs/bin/ld -G -h tango.so -o .libs/tango.so packet-tango.lo -R/u/morriss/wireshark/wireshark-0.99.2/epan/.libs -R/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/lib -L/u/morriss/wireshark/wireshark-0.99.2/epan /u/morriss/wireshark/wireshark-0.99.2/epan/.libs/libwireshark.so -lgmodule-2.0 -ldl -lglib-2.0 -lc ld: warning: symbol `version' has differing sizes:
        (file packet-tango.lo value=0x6; file /u/morriss/wireshark/wireshark-0.99.2/epan/.libs/libwireshark.so value=0x4);
        packet-tango.lo definition taken
It looks like the symbol in libwireshark is from "packet-mysql.c":

/* Define version if we are not building wireshark statically */
#include <gmodule.h>
G_MODULE_EXPORT const gchar version[] = "0.1";
A bunch of .c files in "plugins/giop/" also define a (non-static) string 
named "version" which was put in there by "tools/wireshark_gen.py".
Shouldn't all those version strings be static?  Or...
