How did fig get in there, btw? Doesn't that add dependencies? (or did that get coded up manually / with no library support?)

Hmm. I typed "lstopo-no-graphics" above, just to be descriptive, but is that a horrible name? If the main goal is for binary packagers who assumedly have /etc/alternative-type solutions such that users will rarely/never type that full name, how about just being descriptive with a lengthy suffix like that?
