configure.in says

# We'll want to remove this eventually.
AC_DEFINE(HAVE_AIRPDCAP, 1, [Enable AirPDcap (WPA/WPA2 decryption)])

so HAVE_AIRPDCAP is forcibly defined on all platforms if autoconf is being used.

For Windows, config.nmake currently does


but, unless AirPcap somehow requires it, I don't see why it bases the setting of HAVE_AIRPDCAP on whether you have AirPcap-without-a-D.  Perhaps, originally, the AirPDCap stuff was part of a library for Windows that was part of the AirPcap stuff, but I think it's now part of the standard epan crypto stuff.

So I'd vote for getting rid of the HAVE_AIRPDCAP #define (and unconditionally include all that code), get rid of the stuff in configure.in to set it, get rid of the stuff in config.nmake and config.h.win32 for it, and not do anything with it in CMake.
