Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] 0.99.4 packaging fails on Windows

I successfully compiled Wireshark 0.99.4 on a Win32 platform, but when I
ran "nmake -f Makefile.nmake packaging", it failed as follows:

File: "libtasn1-3.dll" 538493 bytes
File: "lua5.1.dll" 114688 bytes
File: "init.lua" 5611 bytes
File: "..\..\epan\wslua\console.lua" -> no files found.
Usage: File [/nonfatal] [/a] ([/r] [/x filespec [...]] filespec [...] |
   /oname=outfile one_file_only)
Error in script "wireshark.nsi" on line 335 -- aborting creation process
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:/program files/nsis/makensis.exe"' :
return code
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: '"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual
MAKE.EXE"' : return code '0x2'


It seems that the wireshark.nsi file includes these 2 lines [335-336],
but neither file is present in the epan\wslua\ directory:

File "..\..\epan\wslua\console.lua"
File "..\..\epan\wslua\dtd_gen.lua"

Did "nmake -f Makefile.nmake" truly succeed and these 2 lines should
simply be removed from the wireshark.nsi file, or should these 2 files
actually be there and something went wrong during compilation, or
something else?  I commented out the 2 lines and the installer seemed to
build and install OK, but I guess I just wanted to make sure nothing is
missing, such as the ..\epan\wslua\template-init.lua file, for example.

Thanks in advance,
Chris Maynard
