So, yes installing wireshark-devel results in a failure for me to.

So, I stopped after 1/5 and modified the "location" of the definitions
in remote_protocol.x for remote_domain_fsinfo {}.

If move just:

struct remote_domain_fsinfo {
    remote_nonnull_string mountpoint;
    remote_nonnull_string name;
    remote_nonnull_string type;
    remote_nonnull_string dev_aliases<REMOTE_DOMAIN_FSINFO_DISKS_MAX>;
/* (const char **) */

to anywhere (I tested) before:

struct remote_network_dhcp_lease {
    remote_nonnull_string iface;
    hyper expirytime;
    int type;
    remote_string mac;
    remote_string iaid;
    remote_nonnull_string ipaddr;
    unsigned int prefix;
    remote_string hostname;
    remote_string clientid;

Then the build succeeds; however, afterwards it fails. I even tried
changing "dev_aliases" to "devAliases" to see if that would help - it

If I move those dhcp defs to after the get_fsinfo defs, things work fine
again.  Perhaps there's something in tools/wireshark/util/genxdrstub.pl
or something in that dhcp_lease def.

I'm not quite sure what the issue is.
