Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] v1.5: thumbs up or down? - Thumbs Down

Something I have just noticed on the NetBSD platform build
that I think goes further than just that platform.

There is a NetBSD packaging clash between the

libtrace.la

from

ompi/contrib/libtrace/

and that from an already existing package

libtrace-3.0.6

(Homepage:http://research.wand.net.nz/software/libtrace.php)

As the OpenMPI is just a contribution, I've tried turning off the
building the OpenMPI libtrace using the time-honoured

 --enable-contrib-no-build=libtrace

but it still builds.

Is this a new contribution (was not in 1.4x ?) that is not
controlled by the

 --enable-contrib-no-build=

mechanism.

The "configure --help" output only mentions "libnbc" and "vt"
though there doesn't seem to be a "libnbc" to control anymore.

Indeed a top-level,

 find . -name \*nbc\* -print

returns empty handed.

That contribution needs to be

a) brought under the control of --enable-contrib-no-build=

b) possibly renamed (it would seem to be an MPI specific thing)
    so maybe, libmpitrace ?
