Hi,

I've been using openmpi-1.1.5 with no problems, but I decided to move up to version 1.2 yesterday.  I am working with the developers' version of PETSc, so I attempted to configure it using the newly-installed open-mpi.  When I tried this, though, I ran into the following problem (from PETsc's configure.log):

Possible ERROR while running preprocessor: In file included from /Users/willic3/

Here is what I have for my mpicxx:

mpicxx --show
g++ -D_REENTRANT -I/Users/willic3/geoframe/tools/openmpi-debug/include -g -mcpu=G5 -Wl,-u,_munmap -Wl,-multiply_defined,suppress -L/Users/willic3/geoframe/tools/openmpi-debug/lib -lmpi_cxx -lmpi -lopen-rte -lopen-pal

I can make a change to mpicxx.h that fixes the problem:

diff mpicxx-orig.h mpicxx.h
162,164c162,164
< #include "ompi/mpi/cxx/constants.h"
< #include "ompi/mpi/cxx/functions.h"
< #include "ompi/mpi/cxx/datatype.h"
---
> #include "openmpi/ompi/mpi/cxx/constants.h"
> #include "openmpi/ompi/mpi/cxx/functions.h"
> #include "openmpi/ompi/mpi/cxx/datatype.h"

I don't know if this is the correct approach, though.  Are the paths actually incorrect or have I configured open-mpi incorrectly?

Thanks,
Charles
