[Openmcl-devel] libelf version.

IIRC, one of the libelf/elfutils packages was developed by RedHat and
is the only one distributed with Fedora; the oprofile stuff in CCL 
and the ELF interfaces it uses were based on that.  That particular
package has a current version number around 0.147.

In at least some distributions, installing that package will install
libelf.so.VERSION somewhere; it's necessary to install the corresponding
-dev package to get a link to that file installed as libelf.so.
