[erlang-questions] diameter_make compilation issues for 3GPP Diameter Commands

Hi,

As the error message suggests, the problem is most likely that the
optional [ Destination-Host ] AVP is on the wrong spot in the message
definition. According to the Diameter Base Protocol spec (RFC 6733, Chapter
3.2) the sequence of AVPs after the header should be : fixed ( <...> ) ,
required ( {...} ) , optional ( [...] ). You should probably fix the
message definition to follow this order. My experience with picking message
definitions from 3GPP diameter protocol specs is that they almost always
need (sometimes significant) handcrafting to work.

Regards,
Ferenc
