Thanks for all

Finally I use the program notepad to save the files below  in Unicode  format, and compiling wireshark-0.99.7 has passed.

The files converted:

also, Maybe use iconv for win32 to batchly convert these files .

iconv for win32 download address: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gnuwin32/libiconv-1.9.2-1.exe?modtime=1138549015&big_mirror=1

compiling system info:
OS: windows xp sp2 (code page 936)
C compiler: Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition
Platform SDK: SDK Server 2003 R2
