I think this is a strong argument to move away from the export definition in DEF file to a decoration in the header file. With the prefix like i.e. WIRESHARK_API(1) you can decorate any function that is intended to be public available. The WIRESHARK_API will be #defined as declspec(__dllexport) or declspec(__dllimport) depending on the environment. Wile building any libWireshark module it's export, it's import when compiling a DLL using libWireshark.
(1) Any other prefix is acceptible.
