Subject: [OMPI users] Compiling Open MPI 1.7.4 using PGI 14.2 and Mellanox HCOLL enabled
From: Filippo Spiga (spiga.filippo_at_[hidden])

Dear all,

I came across another small issue while I was compiling Open MPI 1.7.4 using PGI 14.2 and building the support for Mellanox Hierarchical Collectives (--with-hcoll). Here you how configure Open MPI:

export MXM_DIR=/opt/mellanox/mxm
export KNEM_DIR=$(find /opt -maxdepth 1 -type d -name "knem*" -print0)
export FCA_DIR=/opt/mellanox/fca
export HCOLL_DIR=/opt/mellanox/hcoll

../configure CC=pgcc CXX=pgCC FC=pgf90 F90=pgf90 --prefix=/usr/local/Cluster-Users/fs395/openmpi-1.7.4/pgi-14.2_cuda-6.0RC --enable-mpirun-prefix-by-default --with-hcoll=$HCOLL_DIR --with-fca=$FCA_DIR --with-mxm=$MXM_DIR --with-knem=$KNEM_DIR --with-slurm=/usr/local/Cluster-Apps/slurm --with-cuda=$CUDA_INSTALL_PATH

At some point the compile process fails with this error:

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/fs395/archive/openmpi-1.7.4/build/ompi/mca/coll/hierarch'
Making all in mca/coll/hcoll
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/fs395/archive/openmpi-1.7.4/build/ompi/mca/coll/hcoll'

make[2]: *** [] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/fs395/archive/openmpi-1.7.4/build/ompi'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Attached the configure.log and the make.log collected as reported on the website. Using google I found an old post referring to the same problem. Here few relevant links:

I have no problem to use a fake wrapper or the "-noswitcherror" compiler pgf90 flag. I wonder if this procedure will affect in some way the MPI built and I have to carry on this flag also when I compile my applications.

Is there any way to fix libtool so Open MPI can build itself properly?
