My OpenBSD-5.1 testers for both i386 and amd64 are failing the same tests as I reported a few minutes ago with respect to FreeBSD-6.3.
On my FreeBSD-6.3/amd64 platform I see "make check" failing 3 tests under test/datatype (see below). Of course "make" stops after that, making it possible that additional tests might fail later.
However, my records do show that the v1.5 branch was just fine on this machine, as was the trunk on or about Feb 21, 2012. So, unless the failing tests are new THIS IS A REGRESSION.Newer FreeBSD-7.2/amd64, FreeBSD-8.2/amd64 and FreeBSD-9.0/amd64 are all OK.The failures:$ grep -B1 ^FAIL $HOME/OMPI/openmpi-1.7rc5-freebsd6-amd64/LOG/check.logSegmentation fault (core dumped)FAIL: position--Segmentation fault (core dumped)FAIL: ddt_testSegmentation fault (core dumped)FAIL: ddt_rawUsing gdb to get a backtrace from the generated core files shows a stack over 1300 frames deep, which I suspect is either evidence of a corrupted stack (buffer overflow?) or of infinite recursion.

Please put it thru the wringer to help us validate it prior to release later this month. We think this looks pretty complete, pending someone finding a problem.
