 wireshark + qt5 + gcc6+ has been failing since November 11 last year
In file included from
fatal error: stdlib.h: No such file or directory
 #include_next <stdlib.h>

 This is because gcc 6 has started providing stdlib.h itself, but wireshark
changes all -I options into -isystem which makes the include_next not find
stdlib.h any more. (Note, I have not found out why it didn't fail before
November 11; the autobuilders were already using GCC6, and wireshark itself was
bumped months before...).

 There are two possible solutions for this:

1. Revert upstream commit 67d9daa65b9d "autotools: Fix extra-compiler-warnings
for system headers". It's a rather big commit, though, and it doesn't revert

2. Switch to CMake, which anyway has to happen at some point since newer
releases have dropped autotools.

 I've started doing the latter, but it turns out that the CMake infrastructure
no longer supports GTK2. So, that would also imply removing GTK2 support from

 Since we're just before the 2018.05 release, and since this should also be
backported to 2018.02, I wasn't sure whether that was acceptable...

 Basically, it's choosing between supporting GTK2, or supporting QT5 + GCC6, or
a possibly very complicated configure.ac + Makefile.am patch.
