Actually I found that the utility "zpinger" works (the 2 nodes "ping"
each other)... I suspect it's due to the fact that when I used gcc5.3
I used a version of libzmq built without libsodium...

So do you think that when I have 2 Zyre nodes talking to each other
(actually  unidirectional communication is a more fair comparison to
my ZMQ tests) I can reach similar performance to plain ZMQ sockets if
I spend some time optimizing the code?
That's an important point for me to decide whether using vanilla ZMQ
or Zyre instead...
