Some jute generated functions (e.g. allocate_ACL_vector) that should be publicly exported are given local (vs global) linkage. This is due to an incomplete regex for EXPORT_SYMBOLS in the C Makefile.am.
Without allocate_ACL_vector it's not possible to set ACL lists from C.
The regex should include "allocate_" :
EXPORT_SYMBOLS = '(zoo_|zookeeper_|zhandle|Z|format_log_message|log_message|logLevel|deallocate_|allocate_|zerror|is_unrecoverable)'
