Yes, I had to remove the 'SIGNED' compilation symbols as well. This has
to do with what Wayne Kelly was already earlier commenting about:

If someone can provide instructions on how to compile the simple program
I sent without removing the SIGNED symbols from the libraries, then I
can see if I get it working. The SIGNED symbols appeared somewhere
around SVN 103 and broke my program as well but at that time removing
the SIGNED allowed working again (even with the 'require').
