You shouldn't need them on a GNU/Linux system, where you can use ssh
plus the PAM module -- see remote_startup(5). That version of the rpm
shouldn't have used aimk -no-remote but it seems wise generally. The
rsh binary needs to be installed setuid and the "remote" source is
pretty old, with possible security issues; it needs non-trivial work
checking updates from the BSD version. I don't know of any reason to
use it if you have ssh and PAM (which also forwards X and potentially
GSS tokens and is more scalable).
Anyhow there are updated RPMs with a more lax install script.

The readme in the distribution directory mentions the hwloc rpms in the
support directory and also an hwloc library tarball for the Ubuntu
binaries. Does that need to be made clearer?
