[ovs-discuss] building DPDK support for OVS

The current model  that I know for building DPDK enabled OVS is to just git
clone the OVS tree and build + install everything. This involves installing
all kinds of tool chain packages required for machines.

Currently, major Linux distributions support package installation of OVS.
I was hoping if there was a just a source package for corresponding DPDK
modules.  This will allow me to just build only the DPDK portion of the
kernel module that can work with the installed packages and retain the full
flexibility of OVS package installation.

Am I missing anything in my thought process?
