Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Makefiles for private dissectors

Dear Wireshark devs,

I'm trying to build my own dissectors, and followed a manual where it put all of these in a folder called private_plugins and uses a CMakeListsCustom.txt, which I put at the bottom of this mail (simply setting CUSTOM_PLUGIN_SRC_DIR to foo and bar).

I got everything to work, an executable built, and my private dissectors work fine as well. Now, I noticed I am able to package a .dmg file on osx (and an rpm as well) using make osx-package (or make rpm-package). However, I need to switch to Makefiles for that. I noticed my private plugins are no longer picked up, and not part of the actual package built.

I searched through many examples on the web, also the doc/ subfolder, and tried many things. But I'm not able to get it to work. Would be great if someone could tell me how to get it working.

Maybe I show tell what I currently have... (although I tried many other things).

$ cat plugins/Custom.make

        ../private_plugins/foo \
        ../private_plugins/bar \

        Custom.m4 \

_CUSTOM_plugin_ldadd_ = \
        -dlopen ../private_plugins/foo/foo.la \
        -dlopen ../private_plugins/bar/bar.la

    ../private_plugins/foo/packet-foo.c \

I don't see the configure script output something like "config.status: creating private_plugins/foo/Makefile", which I think it should somehow?

make fails because there's no Makefile

Making all in plugins
Making all in ../private_plugins/foo
make[3]: *** No rule to make target `all'.  Stop.
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

// This used to work for cmake:

$ cat CMakeListsCustom.txt
