Glad to hear that.

Are you using the vampir tracing feature? If not I would add the
"--enable-contrib-no-build=vt" option to your configure line and see if
that works.

Beware, I don't think we've tried compiling OMPI with Forte 7. Also
note omp.h is for OpenMP not MPI. It looks like the last error you ran
into with may be an issue with the Forte 7 C++ compiler.
