I encountered some problems while running configure during the linking of the pf_ring libraries. I found another listserv post that suggested setting LIBS="-lrt -lnuma" prior to running configure. This does indeed get me past the problems linking pf_ring, but later on I believe it causes issues with linking libpcap and file. The necessary packages are installed, and if I compile Suricata without pf_ring support, everything configures and compiles as expected.

I wonder if this has more to do with how PF_RING was built?  I just
used the PF_RING packages for CentOS 7 and build Suricata just fine,
then I built it PF_RING with the latest git checkout and it built just
fine again - I also checked to make sure it was linking against the
pfring enabled libpcap.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for you at this time.
