Subject: Re: [OMPI users] openmpi 1.4.1 and xgrid
From: Ralph Castain (rhc_at_[hidden])

I build it on Mac 10.6 every time we do an update to the 1.4 series, without problem. --without-xgrid or --with-xgrid=no should both work just fine (I use the latter myself).

You might also try downloading the 1.4.2rc3 tarball and give it a try. Offhand, I can't think of what the problem might be on your machine.
