If our configuration had worked out of the box, I'd be inclined
to volunteer some help. Inasmuch as it didn't, I'd be concerned that we
don't have very representative configurations.

Turns out xlc == /usr/vac/bin/cc.

The flags themselves were unhelpful - just presenting the same data
in another way. The problem is that those symbols are present (on our systems
at least) in libcurses but not libncurses, which is what the HWLOC_TERMCAP_LIBS
uses (because the search path in config/hwloc_internal.m4 places ncurses before
curses), so specifying LIBS="-lcurses" on the configure line did the trick.
