If you just want to get rid of the warning, you can edit the settings
for the wrapper compilers in share/openmpi/mpif90-wrapper-data.txt, etc.
gcc -dumpspecs | grep pthread
shows that -pthread adds the preprocessor flag -D_REENTRANT and the linker
flag -lpthread. I.e., removing -pthread from the
line and adding -D_REENTRANT to the
line and -lpthread to the
line should do the job and should be completely equivalent.
As far as Intel compilers are concerned -pthread can be replaced with
"-reentrancy threaded", but that does not work when the underlying compiler
is changed, e.g., OMPI_FC=gfortran.
