Subject: [OMPI users] Problems with compilig of OpenMPI 1.2.7
From: Paul Kapinos (kapinos_at_[hidden])

Hi all,

I just tried to install the 1.2.7 version of OpenMPI alongside to our
used 1.2.5 and 1.2.6.

Because we use gcc, intel, studio and pgi compilers on three OSes
(Linux, Solaris/Sparc/ Solaris/Opteron), we have at least 15 Versions to
compile (not all compilers are available everywere). Some versions are
configured and compiled well (so, I don't check them yet, but they
compiled and installed...)

But 8 of versions beraks the compilation with some crude error messages.
Mostly there were logs like

"/usr/include/infiniband/kern-abi.h", line 144: zero-sized struct/union
"btl_openib_component.c", line 293: warning: syntax error: empty
declaration

Six of 8 broken versions stopped the compilation on the file
./ompi/mpi/cxx/mpicxx.cc

So, it seems to me, there is somewhat nasty with one or more
declarations somewhere...

Does somebody have any idea what I am doing wrong? Or maybe there is an
bug in 1.2.7?

Best regards
Paul Kapinos

P.S. I Used quite straght forward configuretion like following:

./configure --enable-static --with-devel-headers CFLAGS="-O2 -m64"
CXXFLAGS="-O2 -m64" F77=f77 FFLAGS="-O2 -m64" FCFLAGS="-O2 -m64"
LDFLAGS="-O2 -m64" --prefix=/rwthfs/rz/SW/MPI/openmpi-1.2.7/solx8664/studio

Of course other versions (32bit, other compiler) are configured with
adapted settings ;-) The very same settings applied to 1.2.5 and 1.2.6
does not produce any problems in the past.
