Hello Bas van der Vlies,
The memory leak you found in Open MPI 1.2 has not yet been fixed in the
1.2 branch. You can follow the status of that particular fix for the
1.2 branch here:
https://svn.open-mpi.org/trac/ompi/ticket/970

The fix should go in soon, but I had a problem yesterday applying the fix.

It has been fixed in the trunk, which has nightly tarballs available
here where you don't need to run autogen (and shouldn't):
http://www.open-mpi.org/nightly/trunk/

Be aware that the trunk is currently under development for a future 1.3 release,
and already has many differences with the 1.2 version. i.e. it is unstable.

However, what specifically happened when you say that ./autogen.sh fails on
the trunk? What version of libtool, automake, and autoconf do you have?

Thanks for your bug report and your patience!
