They've been recently removed by me since they're not needed anymore to build wireshark. I'm not sure about adding them to the script: that would force anyone using it and just building (like me and all the debian based CI platforms that rely on it) to have autotools back. Perhaps a new cmd line switch (atm we have --install-optional)? Like --install-deb-deps or similar?

Hi,

As the title says trying to build .deb packages on a vanilla Ubuntu 18.04 fails:

 

dpkg-checkbuilddeps: error: Unmet build dependencies: debhelper (>= 9) po-debconf python-ply docbook-xsl (>= 1.64.1.0-0) docbook-xml libxml2-utils quilt

dpkg-buildpackage: warning: build dependencies/conflicts unsatisfied; aborting

dpkg-buildpackage: warning: (Use -d flag to override.)

 

That the debhelper drags in autotools seems a bit unfortunate.

Should these packages be added to the setup script?
