Please read the "Portability" section of the "doc/README.developer" document in the Wireshark source, and then go through your code to make sure you're not doing *anything* that it says not to do.  Not all compilers are GCC, and not all things that GCC accepts are accepted by all C compilers, including the Microsoft C compiler that's used for Wireshark on Windows.
