This problem is not unique to the Windows build.  I just attempted to build this version under Linux and got this:

Making all in .
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ejb/tools/wireshark'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `util.c', needed by `wireshark-util.o'.  Stop.

I'm also looking into this (on the Linux end) so let's make sure we continue to communicate on this issue to assure good coordination.
