I'm developing a plugin that requires use of the encryption library functions in <gcrypt.h> - this file is included in several of the epan dissectors. I can successfully build Wireshark 1.2.8 and 1.3.5 and my plugin without <gcrypt.h> included in the plugin source code. However, when I include <gcrypt.h> in the plugin source code the compiler can't locate it so I guess its a plugin makefile issue.
Has any one encountered this issue before and suggest how to resolve it?
Are you on *NIX or Windows?

On *NIX if your gcrypt.h is not someplace obvious (like /usr/include/) you probably need to add something like:
INCLUDES = -I$(srcdir)/../.. -I$(srcdir)/.. \

to your plugin's Makefile.am . (The above example is from epan/dissectors/Makefile.am .)
I suppose Windows may have something similar.

Compile and link by modifying the plugin's Makefile.nmake file (I'm 
working on WIN32 - the plugin's Makefile.am file isn't part of the 
plugin compile process) as follows:
1. Add $(GNUTLS_CFLAGS) to the CFLAGS line, e.g.:

    /I$(PCAP_DIR)\include -D_U_="" $(LOCAL_CFLAGS)

2. Add $(GNUTLS_LIBS) to the $(PLUGIN_NAME).dll line, e.g.:
