After much searching and faffing I have finally found out what the problem 

It turns out the Wireshark package.pmdoc file I had got from the
patch had an absolute path name to the COPYING.txt licence
file. This path started /Users/gcombs/ That was the file
it couldn't read, nothing to do with en.lproj

Running the package maker GUI editor and changing this to
a file name relative to the package made it all work.

Inside Wireshark package.pmdoc the index.xml file needs
changing from

<locale lang="en">
<resource type="license">


<locale lang="en">
<resource relative="true" mod="true" type="license">COPYING.txt</resource>
