Well, the obvious answer is to use the gcc compiler instead of g++ and write in C instead of C++.  

If that won't work for you for some reason, you need to modify your C++ code.  The compiler message you've shown is complaining about a typedef'd struct declaration not being a proper C++ object.  That same complaint will be made about EVERY such struct in wireshark that your code uses, either directly or indirectly, unless you tell your code that your included files are C and not C++.  See http://www.parashift.com/c++-faq-lite/mixing-c-and-cpp.html for details about how to do this.
