### Not able to compile packet-pkcs12-template.c

Hello all,

I am new to wireshark development. I have been able to setup build environment on Cent OS7 and compile wireshark source.

But then I proceeded to make couple of changes in packet-pkcs12-template.c. I got a compile error. I fixed it but I still get the error. Changes to other dissectors like packet-xxx.c (non-asn1 generated) were compiled successfully. I then made random changes in this file to see if the compiler is really looking at the modified file. Surprisingly I do not get other errors I was expecting before the original error. I keep getting the same first error even after fixing it.

I wonder there is something that I don't know about modifying and compiling *-template.c files.

I am badly in need of help. Let me know if you need any details.

packet-pkcs12.c does not get generated as I see the old timestamp on this.

In packet-pkcs12-template.c, I make following change in PBE_decrypt_data() to get additional compile error:

AKAKKSLD; clear_tvb = tvb_new_child_real_data(encrypted_tvb,(guint8AMIT *)clear_data, datalen, datalen);

Originally I was trying to remove the const type casting for the 2nd parameter of the function call tvb_new_child_real_data, which I fixed in function definition/declaration etc. but I kept getting the above compile error. So I edited the file to introduce more error and I suspect that those errors are not even looked at by compiler.
