Subject: Re: [hwloc-devel] hwloc trunk nightly 1.3a1r3511 fails to build on CentOS 5.6 & RHEL 5.6

Shouldn't the linker be pulling in these dependent libraries automatically if libpci was built properly?

E.g., when I look on my RHEL6 system, I see:

[root_at_savbu-ssd-linux ~]# ldd /lib64/libpci.so.3
        linux-vdso.so.1 => (0x00007fffcc7ff000)
        libresolv.so.2 => /lib64/libresolv.so.2 (0x0000003911c00000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x0000003910000000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x000000390f800000)

Which means that the linker will pull in libresolv at run if it wants/needs to, without needing to specify -lresolv on the command line.

Chris -- does nm on your libpci not show this?
