I still have the issue with GTK3, in that I have to comment out the

Hmm, can you please explain the problems you are encountering - I'd
like to
fix them. In case it involves rewriting the results from pkg-config,
please include the .pc file?

In FindGTK3.cmake there is some code that modifies the paths found by
pkg-config only on Windows.  Doing this totally messed up the paths for
I commented out the block of code and everything just worked.  Note that
I'm using pkg-config from the gtk2 bundle not the Cygwin one.

I can't find a pkg-config.exe in the gtk2 bundle. Where can I find it
(version, arch)? Do I need to do something special in the "nmake ... setup"
phase to get it?

Weird, my CMake test system at home has one, but my nmake dev system I
have here doesn't have it.  I'll try to find out where it came from.

OK, so I'm not blind ;->

8.  Fix build of plugins.

They build on my system (cmake with nmake and msbuild).

When building wireshark, I don't see any attempt to build them, maybe
there's a missing dependency in CMakeLists.  I haven't tried building

They are built automagically, i.e. right now I do out of tree builds
on 32 bit arch:
cmake ..\..\trunk 2>&1 | tee cmake.log
cmake --build . 2>&1 | tee build.log
With default cmakeoptions and default config.nmake files (OK, I modified
config.nmake temporarily to pull in gtk2 as well in order to have both
gtk versions to test with).

On my cmake test env, using the VS201 generator and msbuild, building
wireshark or tshark is successful without any plugins being built.

Perhaps see below.

9.  Fix build of executables that use WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES.

Have to check what you are talking about :-)

Happened right at the end of my testing time so I didn't really
it.  I was trying to build some one of the other executables (mergecap??)
and it failed.  Then I noticed all other executables that depended on

I grepped the whole source tree and did not find anything:
jmayer () egg:~/work/wireshark/svn/trunk> grep -ri WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES .
jmayer () egg:~/work/wireshark/svn/trunk>

In the main CMakeLists.txt:

W:\Wireshark\trunk>c:\cygwin\bin\grep.exe -ni WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES *.txt
CMakeLists.txt:1061:            ${WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES}
CMakeLists.txt:1080:            ${WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES}
CMakeLists.txt:1100:            ${WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES}
CMakeLists.txt:1118:            ${WTAP_PLUGIN_SOURCES}

I just checked: This got removed by commit 53710 - so I possibly had that
problem before as well.

Move most of the plugin code from epan to wsutil and remove all
knowledge of particular types of plugins.  Instead, let particular types
of plugins register with the common plugin code, giving a name and a
routine to recognize that type of plugin.

In particular applications, only process the relevant plugin types.

Add a Makefile.common to the codecs directory.

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