I'm trying to build WS 3.0.3 on Ubuntu 18.04 and the build fails at:

[ 95%] Built target opcua
make[4]: Leaving directory '/home/daryl/wireshark/wireshark-3.0.3/obj-x86_64-linux-gnu'
[ 95%] Built target tshark
make[3]: Leaving directory '/home/daryl/wireshark/wireshark-3.0.3/obj-x86_64-linux-gnu'
Makefile:143: recipe for target 'all' failed
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/daryl/wireshark/wireshark-3.0.3/obj-x86_64-linux-gnu'
dh_auto_build: cd obj-x86_64-linux-gnu && make -j4 returned exit code 2
debian/rules:32: recipe for target 'override_dh_auto_build' failed

I took the option given in INSTALL at 11./b, since I'm on Ubuntu 18.04 and it runs apt, to build with the command "dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc -rfakeroot"

I will try the cmake approach (although I'm not sure about all the options), but if anyone can point out my error on the "easy" approach, I'd appreciate some guidance.

Additional info: cmake's Makefile returned these errors:

[ 94%] Linking CXX executable run/wireshark
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ undefined reference to `TIFFWriteEncodedStrip@LIBTIFF_4.0'
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ undefined reference to `TIFFDefaultStripSize@LIBTIFF_4.0'
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ undefined reference to `TIFFGetField@LIBTIFF_4.0'

collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status

So it looks like a TIFF library failure. "sudo apt install libtiff-dev" reported that TIFF 4.0 was installed and up to date. Might there be another TIFF package I ...(more)

So is SpanDSP also installed from a standard Ubuntu package?

I ran "apt-cache rdepends" on libspandsp-dev and got an empty return. So I don't know why it;s installed.

Since the linker errors were originating in, I went back to cmake-gui, unchecked ENABLE_SPANDSP, and all is well. For the moment I can live without SpanDSP, so this is as far as I go on this problem, unless someone posts an actual solution.
