It looks like we need to add the rest of them: ompi_fortran_<type>_t (these are all in opal/include/opal_config.h, but mpi.h is a standalone, user-includeable file, which is why it replicates a subset of all the configure-generated results). Here's a first stab at what I think will be needed in

Hello Jeff,

I would like to continue this discussion. Corresponding changes in
Clang are already in SVN and the feature should be released with the
upcoming Clang 3.2.

I tried to follow your advice about Fortran datatypes and updated the
patch accordingly (attached). This patch is against OpenMPI 1.9.
Please review.

Is there any chance we can get a less invasive (header-only, without
autotools magic for Fortran datatypes support) change in the OpenMPI

Seems like it works.
