Yes, it fails before trying to insert the payload, so it doesn't matter

We should fix that, but I'm not sure where. If you just type make again it
works, but all the util/ subdirectories are at whatever version your source
tree was before you did the checkout.

Try a different toolchain. It's known to be broken for v2.

That's strange. They both build fine for me, even on my machine that can't
build v2. Did you try building them for v3 to narrow down the reason?
