I downloaded the ET devel version (ca. Nov 26) on my (ubuntu) laptop and compiled it, using gcc.
I compiled to the linker stage, and the linker complained: ld: cannot find -lnuma ld: cannot find -lltdl
I found references to these libraries in: configs/[buildname]/bindings/Configuration/Capabilities/make.HWLOC.defn
After removing these references, the code compiled and seemed (on the surface) to run okay. Are these libraries really necessary?
I ask because every time I need to install ET on a new machine, it would be more convenient if the step "apt-get install libnuma-dev libltdl-dev" were left out, particularly since reliable Internet access may not exist at that time.
