Carefully read README.plugins and all will be reveiled.

When I unpacked the sources, I grepped everything for 'profinet', and
anywhere I found it (configure, configure.in, Makefile.in,
Makefile.am, etc), I added my dissector after it.  It builds just
fine, but it doesn't seem I should need to touch every file that I
did.  What are the minimum files that need to be modified to add a new
plug-in?  And could the docs be updated with this info (assuming I
didn't overlook it?).

Under Linux I know that files like configure.in are created by the
./configure process.  Under Windows, I have no clear idea what files
it's looking for when it builds (oh, if only my users were Linux users
instead of Windows, my life would be so much easier...)
