Answering my own post:

1. Yes, it seems some binaries were screwed up. So I got the latest AXL and VORTEX libs an compiled everything from scratch.

2. I finally used Code::Blocks to compile the AXL and VORTEX lib, which is way faster to setup, than to fight against all the makefiles, paths, tools etc.
