Subject: [OMPI users] openmpi 1.5 build from rpm fails: --program-prefix now checked in configure

Hi
this is to report that building openmpi-1.5 from rpm fails on Linux
SLES10sp3 x86_64,
due to --program-prefix switch use now checked in configure script
delivered with 1.5.

rpm is version 4.4.2-43.36.1

rpmbuild --rebuild SRPMS/openmpi-1.5.0.src.rpm --define
'configure_options CC="/softs/gcc/4.5.1/bin/gcc
" CXX="/softs/gcc/4.5.1/bin/g++
" F77="/softs/gcc/4.5.1/bin/gfortran
" FC="/softs/gcc/4.5.1/bin/gfortran "
--prefix=/opt/openmpi/1.5.0/gfortran-4.5.1-gcc-4.5.1-BLCR-PBS
          --enable-static --enable-shared
--with-wrapper-ldflags="-Wl,-rpath
-Wl,/opt/openmpi/1.5.0/gfortran-4.5.1-gcc-4.5.1-BLCR-PBS/lib64
-Wl,-rpath -Wl,/softs/blcr/0.8/lib"
--with-memory-manager=ptmalloc2
--enable-orterun-prefix-by-default --with-openib
                  --disable-ipv6 --with-ft=cr
--enable-ft-thread --enable-mpi-threads
--with-blcr=/softs/blcr/0.8
--enable-mpirun-prefix-by-default
--with-tm=/opt/pbs/default
--with-wrapper-libs="-lpthread -lutil -lrt"' --define '_prefix
/opt/openmpi/1.5.0/gfortran-4.5.1-gcc-4.5.1-BLCR-PBS' --define '_name
openmpi_gfortran-4.5.1-gcc-4.5.1-BLCR-PBS' --define '_topdir /scratch'
--define '_unpackaged_files_terminate_build 0' --define
'use_default_rpm_opt_flags 0'

ends with:
[...]
configure: WARNING: *** This configure script does not support
--program-prefix, --program-suffix or --program-transform-name. Users
are recommended to instead use --prefix with a unique directory and make
symbolic links as desired for renaming.
configure: error: *** Cannot continue

In the present environment (SLES10sp3 x86_64, rpm 4.4.2-43.36.1),
rpmbuild --rebuild produces and execs a temporary shell script calling
configure
with an *empty* --program-prefix switch (--program-prefix=).

It works with openmpi 1.4.3
but configure script from openmpi 1.5 is more picky about using
--program-prefix, --program-suffix or --program-transform-name:

# diff /usr/src/packages/SOURCES/openmpi-1.5/configure
/usr/src/packages/SOURCES/openmpi-1.4.3/configure | grep program-prefix
< # Suggestion from Paul Hargrove to disable --program-prefix and
< { $as_echo "$as_me:${as_lineno-$LINENO}: WARNING: *** This
configure script does not support --program-prefix, --program-suffix or
--program-transform-name. Users are recommended to instead use --prefix
with a unique directory and make symbolic links as desired for
renaming." >&5
< $as_echo "$as_me: WARNING: *** This configure script does not support
--program-prefix, --program-suffix or --program-transform-name. Users
are recommended to instead use --prefix with a unique directory and make
symbolic links as desired for renaming." >&2;}

If I remove the new control on --program-prefix in openmpi-1.5 configure
script, the 1.5 build becomes OK.
