That was indeed the problem (strange, though, that the ZFS package installation
didn't blow up)!
For reference (and repeatability), here's what I did:
The first step was to install CentOS 7.2-1511. I selected Minimal install plus
Development tools. I had originally selected just Minimal install, which was
the source of my problems.
Then I executed the following:
# yum update (Optional, ZFS works with and without this step)
# yum install epel-release
# yum install http://archive.zfsonlinux.org/epel/zfs-release.el7.noarch.rpm
# yum install kernel-devel zfs
# init 6
Once the machine came back up, I issued a zpool status, which (correctly)
said that there were no pools available.
I'm going to play some more, then get to gribs with booting from a ZFS
root. Thanks to everyone for their help!
