I've never had these troubles building on Debian lenny/sid or squeeze/sid.

The error report seems rather strange to me: it looks as if a
hard/softlink was created into /usr/share/misc/ ?
Maybe there's something special with Ubuntu in this matter?
What version of the Wireshark sources are you trying to compile?
