Opps - nope - that's not referenced from anywhere...

Hi,
It works for my custom plugins so I haven't paid attention, looking closer I see that I have

_CUSTOM_plugin_src_=\

In addition to the ones in the example file, which probably makes all the difference :-)

Regards
Anders

Hi list,

When using 'make dist', like when building an RPM(*), my custom 
plugins don't get included in the tarball. The custom source 
directories are there, but Custom.[n]make isn't. Custom.m4 is pulled 
in via configure dependencies (am__configure_deps, via DIST_COMMON), 
but what is the right way to pull the two other in (if they exists that is)?

Why not do the Right Thing(tm) and make the plugins built-in? :-)  (I say that because I know 
epan/dissectors/Custom.common works well.)

Assuming that's not a pleasant choice, maybe making the plugins Custom stuff to be more like the built-in stuff would 
work:

1) Rename plugins/Custom.*.example to plugins/Custom.*
2) Modify those files so they don't have real content (comment things out until it builds :-))
3) Rename plugins/Custom.* in plugins/Makefile.am's EXTRA_DIST so these files get distributed all the time
4) (From now until eternity) be careful not to commit your changes to
plugins/Custom.*

(*): Jeff, I'm backporting the RPM fixes to my 1.6 custom tree. It 
takes a little tweaking but it's going well. Thanks for the effort.

You're welcome. :-)
