Hi Folks,

I'm having some build issues on a machine that I haven't built
wireshark on. The usual script I use is:

svn co http://anonsvn.wireshark.org/wireshark/trunk/ wireshark
sudo apt-get build-dep wireshark

The error is  (during make):

if gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I..  -I.. -I../wiretap
-I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include/pcap
'-DPLUGIN_DIR="/usr/local/lib/wireshark/plugins/1.7.0"' -Werror

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/aakhter/wireshak-37604/gtk'

Any thoughts on what might be causing this?
