Ok, thanks.

It is not expanding to "extern". However, in
epan/dissectors/packet-dcom.h, you have:
  WS_DLL_PUBLIC const value_string dcom_hresult_vals[];
  WS_DLL_PUBLIC const value_string dcom_variant_type_vals[];
  extern const value_string dcom_protseq_vals[];

If WS_DLL_PUBLIC should expand to "extern", why isn't
dcom_protseq_vals WS_DLL_PUBLIC rather than "extern"?

Anyway, I'll check top of 1.10.
