Subject: [OMPI devel] running top-level breaks romio in 1.6.3 tarball
From: David Shrader (dshrader_at_[hidden])

When using Open MPI from the 1.6.3 tarball, I have found that running
the top-level breaks the romio component. Here are the steps
to reproduce:

1) download openmpi-1.6.3.tar.bz2 from
2) untar openmpi-1.6.3.tar.bz2
3) cd openmpi-1.6.3
4) ./
5) ./configure

In configure's output, the following error can be seen:

...output snipped...

None of the MPI/IO components work, including ufs, if I continue with a
'make' and 'make install'.

Judging from the output from configure and a quick perusal of romio's
configure script, it looks like some macros are not being correctly
expanded in the creation of romio's configure script.

For reference, here are the versions of my autotools:
m4: 1.4.16
autoconf: 2.69
automake: 1.11.5
libtool: 2.4.2

I have not yet submitted this as a Trac item on I
wasn't sure what to put in the "Version" field as 1.6.3 wasn't listed
there and I don't know if this is an issue in the 1.6 branch.

Thank you very much for your time,
