Well, libibumad is pretty useless without some network structure definitions.
Currently, the alternatives are to install opensm, which also requires
installing libibmad, libibcommon, and complib, or for the app to define what
they need, which is what was done here.  I'm not sure how you pick up ib_types.h
without libibumad getting installed, but you can make a reasonable argument that
libibumad should define the MAD and SA attribute structures.
