Of course, that's why it's failing. You must add --with-acl-support
to the configure. When you do it will start working.

Yes, this is a change and one we should have mentioned in the release notes.
It didn't occur to us (me actually) that this would change things until I
saw the reports and started thinking about it.

No, it will not. You *must* specify --with-acl-support. You're mistaking
it finding the ACL headers from deciding to use the ACL code.

make clean - ensure you're using the new build. It is perfectly reproducible
for me, no --with-acl-support the problem appears, use --with-acl-support
and the problem is gone.
