    Well it's little hard to do this in checkAPIs.pl cause we need
    preprocessor,
    and some value_string (like tpncp) are generated from file.

    This patch is OK for me.



I didn't measure, but it didn't noticibly add to the startup time (I ran ./wireshark >& duplicated.txt). It is ugly to dump so much into a console.... probably not many non-developers run wireshark that way though. I wasn't planning on submitting it in its current form.
Well, it serves a useful purpose.  It could always be checked in but 
#if'd out (only to be turned on periodically by an interested developer).
