Oh -- I guess I should classify this as a "known bug". Try
compiling/linking against the stable release 1.212 which is what I'm
working on. I didn't want to base my program on a "beta" thing which
could change. I myself had problems linking up to MPLib 1.504 so I
just let it go since a beta is expected to change.

Very sorry for all the trouble -- I guess it's obvious I'm a greenhorn
in this program development stuff -- silly of me to not mention the
library version to compile against (but I guess I'm thinking in terms
of Qt's API compatibility which MPLib is not guaranteeing right now).
