This may be the same issue that was just fixed in the latest SVN;

Someone recently wrote a message about resolving OpenBSD build issues:

  http://www.wireshark.org/lists/wireshark-dev/200607/msg00166.html

I'm surprisd you're having so much trouble as it works without much 
trouble on FreeBSD.  If I have a chance, I'll install OpenBSD (always 
wanted to try it anyway) and see if I can get it to build.
