2. I had to disable building with geoip because:

A little digging finds that the Windows Wireshark version of the GeoIP library(1.5.2) is a bit old; The current version (on GitHub [1]) is 1.6.6 and has had various fixes made since 1.5.2.
I also note that the 1.6.6 GeoIP.h no longer has the macro definition 
for snprintf so the MSVC2015 GeoIP compile problem obviously won't occur 
using the latest version.
I don't really know to create the GeoIP libraries (and couldn't easily 
do a 64 bit version anyway) so I'll leave this as a ToDo for others 
(Gerald ?).
(Obviously there's no urgency for this).
