I checked the thread with the same title as this e-mail and tried compiling openmpi-1.1b4r10418 with:

./configure CFLAGS="-mv8plus" CXXFLAGS="-mv8plus" FFLAGS="-mv8plus" FCFLAGS="-mv8plus" --prefix=$HOME/openmpi-SUN-`uname -r` --enable-pretty-print-stacktrace

but I keep getting:

Is Sparc support put aside for the moment or am-I doing something wrong?

Thanks,
