I don't know about this, so I'll let others answer.

Great, thanks! I don't have access to any Suse or Fedora machine
unfortunately so I can't help much. I think it'd be good to have RPMs
for Redhat5 and Centos as well. But I have no idea how to build RPM
packages. Should your spec file work for most RPM-based distro? Is there
a basic how-to for building RPM with such a spec file?

I see that Open MPI has .src.rpm files on its download pages. Should we
consider doing the same for hwloc?

Good to know :)
