Subject: [OMPI devel] 1.5.5rc1 tested: MacOS/ppc (w/ 1 failure and a "CMR")
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])

Using the 1.5.5rc1 tarball, I've repeated tests on the following
platforms for which I recently reported 1.4.5rc1 results:

MacOS 10.5 (Leopard) on PPC:
    powerpc-apple-darwin9-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5488)
MacOS 10.4 (Tiger) on PPC:
    powerpc-apple-darwin8-gcc-4.0.1 (GCC) 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc.
build 5341)
MacOS 10.3 (Panther) on PPC:
    gcc (GCC) 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1666)

On MacOS 10.5 "make all install check" completed w/o incident.

Unfortunately, on MacOS 10.4 (Tiger) I get multiply defined symbols from
VT in "make check":

Unlike the compilation failure for 1.4.5rc1 on MacOS 10.3 (Panther), I
got the following at configure time:
> configure: WARNING: Open MPI does not support OS X prior to version
> 10.4 (Tiger)
> configure: error: Cannot continue
So I would like to "CMR" this logic to the 1.4 branch.
