Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problems with compilig of OpenMPI 1.2.7

Hi Again Paul:

A workaround for your issue is to add the following to your configure line.

--without-threads

This will prevent the synch.h from being included as it is not needed
anyways. We will have to figure out a better solution but for now I
think that will get you passed your mpicxx.cc issue.
