Subject: Re: [OMPI users] install intel mac with Laopard

Jeff,

For the specific problem of the gcc compiler creating i386 objects
and ifort creating x86_64 objects, in the config.log file it says

configure:26935: ifort -o conftest conftest.f conftest_c.o >&% ld:
warning in conftest_c.o, file is not of required architecture

If configure could pick up on this and write an error message
something like "Your C and fortran compilers are creating objects for
different architectures. You probably need to change your CFLAG or
FFLAG arguments to ensure that they are consistent" it would point
the user more directly to the real problem. Right now the information
is in the config.log file but it doesn't jump out at you.
