So I encountered a bug and the solution is to download the latest sources and build. But as I have quite a number of hosts, I want to make a deb file. But it fails with the error below. I can't really figure out what the error is.

I do the following:

sudo apt-get install make g++ Automake qt4-default fakeroot docbook-xml quilt libnl-genl-3-dev libnl-route-3-dev asciidoc cmake
cd /tmp # do not use NFS
wget --no-check-certificate
tar -xf wireshark-1.12.7.tar.bz2
cd wireshark-1.12.7
make debian-package

After some time I get this error:

- Enabled features:
