Are NODES and NODELIST the only env vars that BProc uses (I
gleaned this info from
http://asci-training.lanl.gov/BProc/)?

MTT is set up to detect environment variables and hostfiles
used by Slurm, PBS, N1GE, and LoadLeveler and set a max
value for -np based on those env vars. While we add the
smarts to MTT to do that for BProc, you could also hardcode
the -np value (e.g., 2) in your ini's "MPI Details" section
like so:

exec = mpirun @hosts@ -np 2 --prefix &test_prefix() &test_executable() &test_argv()

Thanks,
Ethan
