It appears to be caused by optimisation flag, specifically:

export CFLAGS='-fno-semantic-interposition'
./configure --with-libvirtd --with-interface --with-numactl
--with-test=yes && make clean; make -j4 V=1; make -C tests check -j4
V=1

fails, yet:

export CFLAGS='-fsemantic-interposition'
./configure --with-libvirtd --with-interface --with-numactl
--with-test=yes && make clean; make -j4 V=1; make -C tests check -j4
V=1

Passes with gcc-5.1.

The docs for the flag are at:
https://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc-5.1.0/gcc/Optimize-Options.html#index-fsemantic-interposition-972

"...With -fno-semantic-interposition the compiler assumes that if
interposition happens for functions the overwriting function will have
precisely the same semantics (and side effects). Similarly if
interposition happens for variables, the constructor of the variable
will be the same. The flag has no effect for functions explicitly
declared inline (where it is never allowed for interposition to change
semantics) and for symbols explicitly declared weak."

I will stop using "-fno-semantic-interposition" for now, but do you
think this is something that could be fixed in either numactl and/or
libvirt codebase? It is desirable to use -fno-semantic-interposition.
