Subject: [OMPI devel] autodetect broken
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

I'm quite confused about what this component did to the base
functions. I haven't had a chance to digest it properly, but it
"feels wrong"... Iain -- can you please explain the workings of this
component and its interactions with the base?

Also, it seems broken:

[15:31] svbu-mpi:~/svn/ompi4 % ompi_info | grep installd
Sorry! You were supposed to get help about:
     developer warning: field too long
But I couldn't open the help file:
     /${datadir}/openmpi/help-ompi_info.txt: No such file or
directory. Sorry!
          MCA installdirs: env (MCA v2.0, API v2.0, Component v1.4)
          MCA installdirs: autodetect (MCA v2.0, API v2.0, Component
          MCA installdirs: config (MCA v2.0, API v2.0, Component v1.4)
[15:31] svbu-mpi:~/svn/ompi4 %

The help file should have been found. This is on Linux RHEL4, but I
doubt it's a Linux-version-specific issue...

I'm going to .ompi_ignore this component because 3 other people have
complained to me in the last 15 minutes on IM that it breaks things
for them.
