Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Can't get a fully functional openmpi build on Mac OSX Mavericks

You can find my configure options in the OMPI distribution at
contrib/platform/intel/bend/mac. You are welcome to use them - just
configure --with-platform=intel/bend/mac

I work on the developer's trunk, of course, but also run the head of the
1.7.4 branch (essentially the nightly tarball) on a fairly regular basis.

As for the opal_bitmap test: it wouldn't surprise me if that one was stale.
I can check on it later tonight, but I'd suspect that the test is bad as we
use that class in the code base and haven't seen an issue.
