Did you have chance to make progress on the issue #2 ? I'm wondering how we want to proceed from here.

Looks to me like you just need to add a couple of includes and correct a typo - yes?
Right.  This part is under control.
The library issue sounds like something isn't right in the - perhaps the syntax has a typo there as well?
I don't know.  This is the part where I could use help.  I took a quick
peek at some files.  I can't see what the essential
difference is between, say, coll/ml/ and, say,
coll/sm/ (which behaves all right).  Nor do I see why there
would be a difference in coll/ml between one system (happens to be
SPARC, though I don't know that's significant) and another.

r27078 (ML collective component) broke some Solaris OMPI builds.

   214     lmngr->base_addr =
   215             lmngr->list_align, uintptr_t);
   216 #endif
  The "#else" code path has multiple problems -- specifically at the
statement on lines 214-215:
  - OPAL_ALIGN needs to be defined (e.g., #include "opal/align.h")
  - uintptr_t need to be defined (e.g., #include "opal_stdint.h")
  - list_align should be list_alignment
I could fix, but need help with...
2)  Somehow,
coll_ml is getting pulled into  E.g., this doesn't look right:
  % nm ompi/.libs/ | grep mca_coll_ml
  [13161] |   2556704|       172|FUNC |LOCL |0    |11
  [13171] |   2555488|       344|FUNC |LOCL |0    |11
  [13173] |   2555392|        92|FUNC |LOCL |0    |11     |mca_coll_ml_err
  [23992] |         0|         0|FUNC |GLOB |0    |UNDEF
The UNDEF is causing a problem, but I'm guessing all that mca_coll_ml_
stuff shouldn't be in there at all in the first place.  This is on one
Solaris system, while another doesn't see the problem and builds fine.
