The current issue is that the same path is passed to both compile and linker and a default build rule invoked to compile which places the object files in the current directory, not where the linker expects them to be.

The compiler gets the path from WIRESHARK_COMMON_SRC, via Wireshark_SOURCES, the linker gets the path from the conversion rule that creates wireshark_OBJECTS.

Possibly a way forward is to break these files out into separate clumps from WIRESHARK_COMMON_SRC so that either the location of the object files can be moved, or the linker can be directed to the correct place.

I'm not able to do much more about it at the moment.
