Hmm -- I'm confused here; it's not possible that you're getting an assertion failure with this configure line, for two reasons:

1. The assert() in question will only be compiled in if you --enable-debug on the configure command line.
2. You supplied -DNDEBUG in CFLAGS, which means you've disabled all assert()s

Can you verify that this is the correct configure line that you used to generate that error? Or is something else going on?

1.7 is a "feature" release. OMPI 1.odd.x series are stable and tested; they're just not as time-tested out in the real world as OMPI 1.even.x series.

We're anticipating 1.8 will be out in early 2014.
