    Thanks for your remainder, i think i miss re-running autogen.sh and configure. 

Yes, i am developing against something other than the current trunk, because what am i developing is not common feature for
all wireshark users, i think. it is kind of  self-defined feature for analyzing whether is there some sctp data chunks with non-continuous 
TSN in target pcap file.

Was sctp_packet_lost_stat_dlg.c compiled and linked into gtk/libui.a ? Was automake re-run (usually when I update Makefile.common, automake is automatically rerun).  If not, try re-running autogen.sh and configure.

Is it possible that the missing symbol is declared as static?

(BTW, I notice that you're developing against something other than the current trunk; if you intend to submit your work for inclusion in Wireshark, you really should be working on trunk, not the 1.6 trunk.)

  Thanks, yes,add all exported symbols in epan/libwireshark.def can fix my problem.
    Another problem,  i want to add a file named as sctp_packet_lost_stat_dlg.c in gtk directory, and add menuitem SctpPacketLostStat in Statistics.
in order to make this menuitem available, i make some change in menus.c, also modified gtk/Makefile.common to make sctp_packet_lost_stat_dlg.c be compiled in to
wireshark. like the following
   about_dlg.c    \
   summary_dlg.c    \
   sctp_packet_lost_stat_dlg.c \

but i still get compile error

          I meet a problem, i define a global variable e.g.
       g_sctp_packet_analyzing_debug in packet-sctp.c, then we want to
       access it in tshark.c.
       even make a statement in tshark.c, i still meet link error
       undefined reference to `g_sctp_packet_analyzing___debug. i know

       it should be linked with
       packet-sctp.o, but seems that wireshark compile system don't
       generate object file packet-sctp.o, i am not familiar with
       wireshark compile system.
       Any expert can help me this out? thanks.

   Any symbols put in libwireshark (e.g., from packet-sctp.c) need to
   be exported by being listed in epan/libwireshark.def .  (That file
   used to be only for Win32, but now *NIX builds also use it.)
