So you want to provide binaries for the libs and the include files and the
other files needed? Where do you want to install them? System wide?
We have to make sure that this does not conflict with the usage of some
package managers running on the system...

I'm actually not using a script, since I need sudo for installation and don't
want to compile everything with sudo. Another reason is that I update the
stuff from time to time to latest versions. Please note that for compiling
you need to put the change of PKG_CONFIG_PATH in ~/.tcshrc or whatever
is appropriate, since it must be set when you compile wireshark.

Best regards
