Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] non-portable test operator in configure

Jeff,

The one in config/ompi_load_platform.m4 was on my original hit-list.
Getting PAST that one shows a new problem that appears NOT to be a "==".
The autoconf manual warns about use of "-a" and "-o" together with
variables that may expand to the empty string, and I suspect that is the
new problem I am hitting. I hope to know soon.
