I appear to have been mistaken about the big configure warning on the
FreeBSD systems.
It was only on OpenBSD and NetBSD.

I've just build a stand-alone hwloc-1.2.2 on FreeBSD-8.2 and it can
"make all install check" w/o any problems.
It even appears to get the right topology:

I can also build hwloc-1.2.2 on NetBSD-5.1 and OpenBSD-5.0, but don't
get the full topology:

So, I agree w/ Brice that OMPI is getting something wrong, as evidenced
by the failures to link linux-specific hwloc symbols.
My reports (other than the one for RHL8) have been unfairly pointing at
