Can you elaborate on why you needed that? If there's a problem with
the stacktrace stuff on BSD, I'd like to make it either disable by
default or fix whatever is required to work properly on BSD.

I don't quite understand this -- are you saying that $ompi_fint_max
becomes a negative number after all the *2's, and then when we escape
it and subtract one, it becomes positive? (ditto for ompi_cint_max)

Thanks for the patch!
