Hi list

My build breaks in two ways

$ configure
The Wireshark package has been configured with the following options:

                       GLib version : v2.48.1

                    Build wireshark : yes (with Qt4 v4.8.7)

                Build wireshark-gtk : yes (with GTK+ v3.20.6)

$ make
make[2]: Entering directory '/home/jaap/src/wireshark/master-2.2/ui/qt'
  CXX      extcap_options_dialog.o

                 from ./extcap_options_dialog.h:35,
                 from extcap_options_dialog.cpp:26:

Is this Qt4 too old?

Then when building the GTK version

$ make wireshark-gtk
  PERL     version.h
version.h unchanged.
make: *** No rule to make target 'ui/gtk/libgtkui.a', needed by 'wireshark-gtk'.

Jumping into ui/gtk, then make gets things going.

Time for bed...
