Enclosed is a patch adapted from Apache APR via JXTA to create a config.nice file for Wireshark. config.nice allows you to re-run ./configure with the same options you used as the last time you ran ./configure
For unknown reasons I've lately had a lot of problems producing working 
builds without rerunning autogen.sh and ./configure. I'm not sure what 
has been changing or what's been wrong that prevents rebuilding from 
working. Every couple of days for the last month or so I find that I 
have to redo autogen.sh and ./configure or the build will fail for 
various obscure reasons in seemingly random files. 'make clean' is 
insufficient to repair the build environment but so far re-running 
autogen.sh and ./configure does the job.
Rebuilding from scratch isn't too painful but the lack of a config.nice 
means I have to remember what options and flags I used and examining 
'config.log' doesn't tell the complete story as it only has the 
./configure options and not the relevant CFLAGS, etc.
config.nice makes rerunning ./configure much simpler.
