The point is that in the compilation process not the newly compiled fontbox was used but an
older version of fontbox instaled on my computer: /Library/Java/Extensions/fontbox-1.6.0.jar
I wasn't aware of the problems I get when building a new pdfbox while an older version is
installed, it seems on the Mac the /Library/Java/Extensions/ is preferred over the new compilation.
I have other versions of fontbox installed (e.g. in my solr system) but they don't do any
harm (it seems, I hope…).

Thanks for the patience along the way!
