The best diagnostic I ever got out of a compiler (other than the classic
Algol 68 "This is not a program") was from a Fortran compiler "End of
statement was expected, but end of statement found".

To be fair, the statement was syntactically nothing like a Fortran
statement. What did you do to provoke Open MPI? :-)
