Ah yes -- that's another reason the f90 interface could be disabled:
if configure detects that the f77 and f90 compilers are not link-

That would probably work (F77=g95). I don't know the g95 compiler at
all, so I don't know if it also accepts Fortran-77-style codes. But
if it does, then you're set. Otherwise, specify a different F77
compiler that is link compatible with g95 and you should be good.

Ah, I see.

Gotcha. I don't think we are defining a "max" macro anywhere in the
ompi_info source or related header files. :-(

We have a whole pile of MPI tests in a private SVN repository. The
repository is only private because it contains a lot of other people's
[public] MPI test suites and benchmarks, and we never looked into
redistribution rights for their software. There's nothing really
secret about it -- we just haven't bothered to look into the IP
issues. :-)

We use the MPI Testing Tool (MTT) for nightly regression across the

We have weekday and weekend testing schedules. M-Th we do nightly
tests; F-Mon morning, we do a long weekend schedule. This weekend,
for example, we ran about 675k regression tests:
