Subject: [OMPI devel] non-portable test operator in configure
From: Paul H. Hargrove (PHHargrove_at_[hidden])
Date: 2012-02-20 04:11:35

Please note that "==" is NOT a portable binary operator for the "test"
It is supported only by the bash built-in version of "test".
The correct operator is a simple "=".

The following appear in the svn trunk

./orte/config/orte_check_alps.m4: AS_IF([test
"$orte_check_alps_pmi_happy" == "yes" -a "$orte_without_full_support" = 0],
./config/ompi_load_platform.m4: if test "$with_platform" == "" ; then

The $with_platform test breaks configure fairly early on at least
Solaris 10.
