Please help me with Makefile.

There is no Makefile in the Wireshark source. Wireshark uses CMake as its build system; see the Wireshark Developer's Guide, especially the setup and build guide for use on UN*Xes.

If you will be building on a the target machine running OpenWRT, that may be sufficient.

If you will be cross-compiling for OpenWRT on another Linux or on some other UN*X, see the aforementioned setup and build guide, as well as the CMake documentation on cross-compiling.

If you will be cross-compiling for OpenWRT on Windows, you may also have to look at the various sections in the Developer's Guide about building on Windows, although not all of that information applies directly.

The instructions for building Wireshark, in general, are in the Developer's Guide linked above.

There are no specific instructions for OpenWRT as that's a separate project and would be the best place to look for support.

I don't think there is an OpenWRT package for Wireshark, but there is for tcpdump, see here for more info.
