Can you send patches?

FWIW, hwloc is working for me with a wide array of POSIX-ish compilers on POSIX-ish platforms (albeit perhaps many of them are quite similar -- 64 bit systems on more-or-less modern-ish hardware). There's quite a degree of portability built in, but if we missed some stuff, well, we're not perfect. :-)
