 No.  Worked for me (without libusb).

 I see you are using clang.  That is probably where the problem

 My log's only mention of ippserver are:
a - util.o
Making all in test...
Compiling ippserver.c...
Compiling ipptool.c...
Linking ippserver...
Linking ipptool...
Linking ipptool-static...
Making all in filter...
Compiling error.c...
 (that was built with make -j4, some of it might be out of order)
