Thanks, Nysal.

The only problem I'm having now is connecting a libtool version (e.g. 2.2.8) with an OpenMPI version. I'm sorry if it's a silly question, but can you tell me in which version of OpenMPI this problem will go away?

Thanks, again.

Brian

Hi Brian,
This problem was first reported by Paul H. Hargrove in the developer mailing list. It is a bug in libtool and has been fixed in the latest release (2.2.8). More details are available here - http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2010/10/8606.php

Regards

OpenMPI version: 1.3.3 & 1.4.3
Platform: IBM P5
Issue: I want OpenMPI to support some existing 64-bit FORTRAN software, but I can't seem to get 64-bit objects from OpenMPI without some modification to the Makefile in ompi/mpi/f90.
I can configure, build, and install just fine with the following compilers:

- CC = xlC_r

- CXX = xlC_r

- F77 = xlf95_r

- FC = xlf95_r
But, this configuration produces 32-bit objects for all languages.
So, to produce 64-bit objects for all languages, I supply the following flags:

- CFLAGS = -q64

- CXXFLAGS = -q64

- FFLAGS = -q64

- FCFLAGS = -q64
This configuration results in the following error during the build (more specifically, link) phase:

- When creating libmpi_f90.la<http://libmpi_f90.la> in ompi/mpi/f90

- COMMANDS:

o /bin/sh ../../../libtool --mode=link xlf95_r -I../../../ompi/include -I../../../ompi/include -I. -I. -I../../../ompi/mpi/f90 -q64 -version-info 0:1:0 -export-dynamic -o libmpi_f90.la<http://libmpi_f90.la> -rpath <prefix>/lib mpi.lo mpi_sizeof.lo mpi_comm_spawn_multiple_f90.lo mpi_testall_f90.lo mpi_testsome_f90.lo mpi_waitall_f90.lo mpi_waitsome_f90.lo mpi_wtick_f90.lo mpi_wtime_f90.lo ../../../ompi/libmpi.la<http://libmpi.la> -lnsl -lutil

- OUTPUT:
/usr/bin/ld: unrecognized option '-q64'

The -q64 option, while valid for the xlf95_r compiler, is not a valid option for /usr/bin/ld. So, I'm wondering why this option got passed to /usr/bin/ld. After looking at <topdir>/ompi/mpi/f90/Makefile, I see that FCFLAGS shows up in link lines ("libmpi_f90_la_LINK" and "FCLINK"). This direction seems to come from Makefile.in.
If I remove these FCFLAGS references from the Makefile, I am able to complete the build and install of OpenMPI, and it seems to correctly support my existing software.
So, now for my question:
Should FCFLAGS show up on these links lines and, if so, how would I get 64-bit objects?
Thanks,
Brian Price
