Hi,

Can wireshark handle env-variable control of the
location of the plugins directory (similar to
LD_LIBRARY_PATH etc)?

I haven't found it, and desperately need it.  I
work in an environment where I commonly use
several platforms, including Solaris sparc and x86
as well as various Linux distros.  So I need to build
architecture-dependent versions of a plugin, and
currently can't find a way to deploy this in an
easy fashion in the $HOME directory.
Take a look at bug 1476:

It looks like what you want may be (partially) implemented already.
