Subject: Re: [OMPI devel] Upgrade GNU auto tools?
From: Ralf Wildenhues (Ralf.Wildenhues_at_[hidden])

Hello OpenMPI developers,

on Darwin/OS X, recent Libtool has some debugging symbols issue fixed.
I think that was even raised on this list a short while ago. Also, an
issue with recent Intel compilers on Linux has been fixed.

Absoft support is not yet in Libtool, but Lahey is.

Hope that helps.
