I did not build this tool with latest e2fsprogs lib, I built it with
stable version 1.41.14
which comes installed with my Ubuntu distro.
Basically, you don't need to download and build any sources, but since
you have built
e2fsprogs from git already you may as well checkout tag v1.41.14,
configure build and install it.
hope this helps.
