S4 - Cannot change ACL

Have done more digging; any attempts to change the ACL from a
freshly-created account with administrator rights gives "Unable to save
permission changes" and "Access is denied"

Ricky - Yes, I followed the guide closely, and installed the required
libraries before compiling. Just to be sure, however, I recompiled S4
again, but no effect.

Curiously, I have the acl,user_xattr option in my /etc/fstab, but 'mount'
gives me /dev/sdb1 on /data type ext4
(rw,relatime,user_xattr,barrier=1,data=ordered) (notice the absence of
'acl', even through user_xattr is there)
