Subject: [OMPI devel] Program prefix for OpenMPI binaries?

Dear all,

Setting program prefix is disabled for OpenMPI compilation, could you
please explain why?

Consider we want to make a package containing OpenMPI packed together
with our open-source compiler, that is installable on arbitrary Linux
system. In this case, it would be very handy to add some program
prefix to guarantee no confusion with other possibly installed MPI
implementations visible through $PATH.
