Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Trouble compiling 1.4.3 with PGI 10.9 compilers
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

Just out of curiosity, does Open MPI 1.5.4 build properly?

We've seen problems with the PGI compiler suite before -- it *does* look like a problem with libtool-building issues; e.g., a switch is too old or is missing or something. Meaning: it looks like PGI thinks it's trying to build an application, not a library. This is usually bit rot in libtool (i.e., PGI may have changed their options, but we're using an older Libtool in the 1.4.x series that doesn't know about this option).

I do note that we fixed some libtool issues in the 1.4.4 tarball; could you try the 1.4.4rc and see if that fixes the issue? If not, we might have missed some patches to bring over to the v1.4 branch.
