I was able to get OMPI running on kfreebsd-amd64. I used a nightly
snapshot from the trunk, so the problem is "more or less fixed by
upstream" ;)

I'll now compile the 1.2.3 release tarball and see if I can reproduce
the segfaults. On the other hand, I guess nobody is using OMPI on
GNU/kFreeBSD, so upgrading the openmpi-package to a subversion snapshot
would also fix the problem (think of "fixed in experimental").

JFTR: It's currently not possible to compile OMPI on amd64 (out of the
box). Though it compiles on i386

it fails on amd64:

stacktrace.c: In function 'opal_show_stackframe':
stacktrace.c:145: error: 'FPE_FLTDIV' undeclared (first use in this
stacktrace.c:145: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only
stacktrace.c:145: error: for each function it appears in.)
stacktrace.c:146: error: 'FPE_FLTOVF' undeclared (first use in this
stacktrace.c:147: error: 'FPE_FLTUND' undeclared (first use in this
make[4]: *** [stacktrace.lo] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/build/buildd/openmpi-1.2.3/opal/util'

This is caused by libc0.1-dev in /usr/include/bits/sigcontext.h, the
relevant #define's are placed in an #ifdef __i386__ condition. After
extending this for __x86_64__, everything works fine.

Should I file a bugreport against libc0.1-dev or will you take care?

I'll keep you posted...
