I have the following error while compiling each time my dissector using 'make' command.

Couldn't really figure out what the problem is actually..
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Nilesh Nayak

So why do a plugin?  Just write a normal new dissector.

Regardless, the doc to read is this: doc/README.dissector

That explains a lot, in detail; and of course you should also look at some existing packet-* files in epan/dissectors.  For UDP, packet-stun.c or packet-ntp.c are a relatively small ones.
