Wireshark-users: [Wireshark-users] Cross compiling on MIPS32 problem

Hi to all,

I'm trying to cross-compile tshark for a MIPS32 platform.
I'm using the following command line in order to create the Makefile:

./configure --target mipsel-linux --host=mipsel-linux --build=i686-linux
--with-pcap=/root/program/DD-WRT/src/router/libpcap_noring --without-zlib
--with-portaudio=no --with-krb5=no --without-plugins  --enable-editcap=no
--enable-dumpcap=no --enable-capinfos=no --enable-mergecap=no

The problem is that when I run make it says that rdps executable cannot run.
If I understood well this file should not be cross-compiled (because it is
used for compilation task on host machine) so I edit the Makefile and I
substitute this: 

rdps: rdps.c
        $(CC_FOR_BUILD) $(CFLAGS_FOR_BUILD) -o rdps $(srcdir)/rdps.c

With this:

rdps: rdps.c
        gcc $(CFLAGS_FOR_BUILD) -o rdps $(srcdir)/rdps.c

and now seems to work.

Is this a bug or I use --target, --host, and --build and the wrong manner?  

Tank you very much for help and for the good work ;-)
