Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Mac OS X Static PGI

Really appreciate you having looked into this!

Unfortunately, I can't see a way to resolve this for the general public. It looks more to me like a PGI bug, frankly - not supporting code in a system-level include makes no sense to me. But I confess this seems to be PGI's mode of operation as I've seen similar issues with their compilers under other OS's as well.

We obviously cannot replace Mac's if.h with the PGI-custom version, nor can we distribute the PGI-custom version for use in that situation. So until/unless PGI fixes their problem, I think this has to be a one-off solution.

Again, thanks for looking into it. Glad that it works for you!
