Since 1.212 is the stable release, meaning that I am not eager to
create a 1.213 right now, and the current development source is a bit
unreliable (as Hans wrote already), by far the easiest solution is to
use the attached C file as an extra source:

   gcc -c -o fixkpse.o fixkpse.c
   gcc -c -o test.o test.c
   gcc -o test test.o fixkpse.o -L . -l mplib

But I will make sure to fix this fake dependency for the next stable
release of metapost / mplib.

Best wishes,
