Hallo,

inspired by the way too late demise of HAVE_LIBGCRPYT I've done a rough
count of other variables. I include everything with 9+ occurrences below:

   9 AIRPDCAP_DEBUG
   9 DEBUG_FRAGMENTS
   9 HAVE_IGE_MAC_INTEGRATION
   9 HAVE_LIBCAP
   9 WIMAX_16D_2004
  10 ALG_USERETRY
  10 HAVE_BPF_IMAGE
  10 HAVE_NETINET_IN_H
  10 HAVE_SYS_SOCKET_H
  10 SHOW_BUFFER_COLUMN
  10 __linux__
  12 HAVE_GEOIP_V6
  12 HAVE_LIBGCRYPT_AEAD
  13 PACKAGE
  13 VERSION
  14 DEBUG_CHILD
  14 DEBUG_CONVERSATION
  14 FIXED_POINT
  14 HAVE_GTKOSXAPPLICATION
  15 DEBUG_HASHING
  15 HAVE_GETOPT_LONG
  15 QT_MULTIMEDIA_LIB
  15 SIGINFO
  15 USE_WIN32_FILE_DIALOGS
  15 _NL_CURRENT
  16 HAVE_GETOPT_H
  16 HAVE_SYS_TYPES_H
  17 NDEBUG
  18 DEBUG_BER
  18 HAVE_C_ARES
  20 HAVE_NGHTTP2
  21 HAVE_LIBPORTAUDIO
  21 HAVE_LIBSMI
  21 Q_OS_WIN
  22 __APPLE__
  23 HAVE_UNISTD_H
  24 HAVE_HEIMDAL_KERBEROS
  24 HAVE_LUA
  24 WANT_PACKET_EDITOR
  25 HAVE_PCAP_OPEN_DEAD
  25 HAVE_SOFTWARE_UPDATE
  30 _DEBUG
  31 Q_OS_MAC
  32 HAVE_LIBGNUTLS
  34 HAVE_HFI_SECTION_INIT
  35 HAVE_PCAP_SETSAMPLING
  40 HAVE_KERBEROS
  40 _AVP_DEBUGGING
  43 HAVE_GDK_GRESOURCE
  45 TVBPARSE_DEBUG
  47 HAVE_AIRPCAP
  48 __SUNPRO_C
  56 HAVE_ZLIB
  59 _MSC_VER
  59 __GNUC__
  62 DEBUG_CAMELSRT
  65 HAVE_GEOIP
  68 HAVE_PLUGINS
  70 CAN_SET_CAPTURE_BUFFER_SIZE
  86 DEBUG
  92 HAVE_PCAP_CREATE
  96 HAVE_PCAP_REMOTE
 122 HAVE_EXTCAP
 182 DEBUG_TCAPSRT
 293 HAVE_LIBPCAP
 506 _WIN32
 506 __cplusplus

To me it looks like HAVE_LIBPCAP would be a candidate to solve somehow, as it is
regularly involved when compiles break without this define. Would it maybe make sense
so include a dummy version inside Wireshark that basically does (mostly) nothing?

Thanks
   Jörg

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that
works. Some say that should read Microsoft instead of technology.
