Subject: [OMPI devel] 1.3rc4 README "nit"

Again, sorry for the last-minute input.

I noticed the following in README:
- Open MPI includes support for a wide variety of supplemental
  hardware and software package. When configuring Open MPI, you may
  need to supply additional flags to the "configure" script in order
  to tell Open MPI where the header files, libraries, and any other
  required files are located. As such, running "configure" by itself
  may include support for all the devices (etc.) that you expect,
  especially if their support headers / libraries are installed in
  non-standard locations. Network interconnects are an easy example
  to discuss -- Myrinet and OpenFabrics networks, for example, both
  have supplemental headers and libraries that must be found before
  Open MPI can build support for them. You must specify where these
  files are with the appropriate options to configure. See the
  listing of configure command-line switches, below, for more details.

And think the intended meaning requires adding the word "not":
   required files are located. As such, running "configure" by itself
- may include support for all the devices (etc.) that you expect,
+ may not include support for all the devices (etc.) that you expect,
   especially if their support headers / libraries are installed in
