I've attempted to reproduce the failure reported below for MacOS 10.4
for PPC on an X86-64 system.
First, I've realized that while I reported "make check" as the source of
the problem, it occurs at "make".
Regardless of that mistake in my reporting, I was unable to reproduce
the problem, making this a PPC-specific problem as far as I can tell.
Instead of 255 instances of "ld: multiple definitions of symbol _MPI_*"
I get instances of "ld: warning multiple definitions of symbol _MPI*",
where the only difference is the addition of the word "warning".
However, this is apparently non-fatal on the x86-64 but fatal by default
