    I have been unable to resolve the following build errors on my Mac

Maybe you have a outdated declare_wslua.h in your source directory?
Try deleting this.

Thanks! That was it. I removed declare_wslua.h and register_wslua.c from
the source directory (wireshark/epan/wslua).

Not exactly sure how the outdated file showed up in the wireshark source
(not build) hierarchy. My guess is it was due to a cmake run because of
the following.

    1. mkdir build
    2. cd build
    3. cmake <options> .. to include cmake -G Xcode ..
    4 No make file in the build directory. It appears to put all the
    generated files in the wireshark source directories. This behavior
    is counter to the build instructions.

Anybody else see this behavior?

Is there a simple way to clean out my source directory so I can truly
start from scratch? ‘git status —ignore’ shows a lot of files where ‘git
status’ only shows my build directory.
'git clean -xfd' to remove everything untracked including ignored files.

Putting generated files in the source tree for an out-of-tree build would appear to be a bug (but Mac OS particulars elude me).
