I took a more elegant way in the end:

I attempted to follow what waiting_threads.c pointed to and it seemed as
if the client library/program would ignore its functions.
So, I disabled it from the build when WITHOUT_SERVER was enabled.

This gives the desired results in the compile.
If there is a "better" way, I'd be open to hear it.
