We might be able to work around this.

Let me clarify: MTT is the engine to run MPI tests -- it's not MPI tests or benchmarks itself. MTT is simply a way to download the nightly tarball, build it N ways, get lots of tests (e.g., the OSU benchmarks), compile each of them against each of the N OMPI builds, and then run each of those tests M different ways, and then submit those results up to our community database.

Once you have MTT up and running, it can run fairly largely automated -- mine runs in a cron job, for example.

Make sense?
