Hi Devs,
I was cross compiling tshark-1.0.0 for powerpc on x86 platform, while doing so, I found that tools rdps and lemon also get builds for powerpc. These are suppose to run on local machine in order to have successfull compilation but since they get build for powerpc, compilation fails with error: Can't execute binary. temporary fix is to build rdps and lemon for local machine after hitting this error. Is this known issue, otherwise shall I open a bug for the same.
I shouldn't think anyone else has tried cross-compiling tshark for a 
while, so no it's not a known issue. Anyway the point of bugzilla is so 
that you can find out if it's a known issue :).
If you'd like to open a bug, great. If you can submit a patch which 
would fix the problem, it may even get sorted out sometime in the near 
future :)
Thanks

Richard
