Thank you for those suggestions. I tried to rebuild with ant, which
broke with some useless error message and I tried to use the
do-release-build script which threw some other errors. At last I tried
to build only the snappy sources which had been downloaded via the
do-release-build script....

What really did the trick was not to use ./bin/hbase-start.sh to start
up the Master and Regionserver, but to use ./bin/hbase-daemon.sh start
master and ./bin/hbase-daemon.sh start regionserver.

I did not find the main difference between those scripts yet to tell
what is missing in the start-hbase.sh.
