So, the configure arguments come from what the user specified. We have capability to internally add extra configure arguments specifically for hwloc, but I was trying to avoid that. Besides, other projects might not have the same macros that MPICH2 has.

Ah, I see.

Can you setenv enable_shared=no (for example) before calling CONFIG_SUBDIRS?

(this may be moot if you end up calling our m4 directly, but I'm still curious)
