Thanks for the heads up. I've noticed this warning on the Cray
systems here at ORNL, and haven't had a chance to put the fix in yet.
This function is exposed in non-CR builds as a user interface item.
If the user requests a checkpoint of an MPI job that was not compiled
with C/R (or doesn't have it enabled if FT was compiled in) then it
will respond with a nice error message instead of not responding at
all. I go back and forth on cutting this out completely as the tools
to checkpoint shouldn't be built if a user doesn't compile in FT
I'll work on a fix for it in the next couple of days.
