Hi, David,
   I also started a clean centos 8.2 vm environment and init the vm
environment with the following command:
$dnf -y install 'dnf-command(config-manager)' && dnf config-manager
--set-enabled PowerTools && dnf install -y gcc make numactl-devel
meson autoconf automake libtool unbound unbound-devel

I could also build dpdk and link ovs successfully. But after I
installed libpcap-devel and rebuild dpdk, I could not link ovs
anymore. And the error message is the same as what I posted before. I
found libpcap.pc also has a dependency about libibverbs:
# pkg-config file for libpcap.
# These variables come from the configure script, so includedir and
# libdir may be defined in terms of prefix and exec_prefix, so the
# latter must be defined as well.

Name: libpcap
Description: Platform-independent network traffic capture library
Version: 1.9.1
Libs: -L${libdir} -lpcap
Libs.private: -libverbs
Cflags: -I${includedir}

As a result, maybe libverbs should also be added in:
      OVS_FIND_DEPENDENCY([pcap_dump_close], [pcap], [libpcap],[libverbs])
    ], [], [[#include <rte_config.h>]])
