Well make check looks happy here. Are you wondering if those "function
not implemented" are normal? Many of them are expected. The hwloc API is
very wide since we try to be portable and many OSes have very different
functionalities. So among the tons of possible membind cases, some
cannot be supported on Linux.

Note that numactl-devel doesn't help hwloc itself (we don't use libnuma
since it's not portable and they severely broke their ABI in the past).
numactl-devel only helps make check if you want to make sure that hwloc
can interoperate with libnuma properly.
