Hey Ralf,

The libtool distinfo file implies NetBSD currently uses libtool-2.2.6b.

An ldd of mpirun shows -lltdl.7 => /usr/pkg/lib/

I do need to attempt a build of 1.4.2 here in ECS, so I'll try
building without the patches but I seem to recall that if those
libtool-related patches


were not applied, it did not even build. But we'll see.

And if you are reading this, Alexsej, have you,as the real
"OpenMPI on NetBSD" man, built a 1.4.2 as yet ?
