Most likely it has a problem with the / instead of \ in uil/util.obj.
Does someone have an idea how to resolve this?
util.obj is being produced in the top level root directory, but the linker
looking for it in ui\.  I'm looking at the makefile now.

Hmm.  I think this would need an explicit build rule.  As it stands, the
compiler is told to compile ui/util.c when in the top level directory, so
that's where the object file is placed.  The linker is told to look for
ui/util.obj and complains.
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.
Are you using cmake (it doesn't look like it)? It builds fine for me using auto*; I even just did a "make clean all" and it worked out.
I tested using cmake, so I'd like to know more about the specific failure.
Ed sent me an email off-list [not sure if that part was intentional or 
not] and said he got it working now--there was probably something 
residual messing up his build.
