It sounds like you're building the Intel-initiated fork of OVS based on DPDK.  This isn't the right mailing list to discuss that fork.  Also, to the best of my knowledge, that fork has not been under active development for some time.

I suggest that you use mainline OVS 2.8.0 (or master) instead of the fork.
