Hi Andreas,

I can't reproduce this with the latest master on a freshly installed
CentOS 6.8. I have successfully built the server packages and also the
client for the unpatched kernel, both without having heartbeat
installed. Maybe the spec file has been fixed already.

LU-5760 "LU-4707 patch breaks Lustre build" might be related.

Here a discussion about the issue with Lustre 2.5 on el6.5 which I have
