That's true.

Can you send the output from pgi-10? We don't reject based on compiler name/version -- it should be all behavior-based checks...

This was enough for me to figure out what I think the issue is.

I was doing one BIND(C) configure test -- it looks like I need to do some additional variations of the BIND(C) test. With these additional tests, I'll bet that we'll rule that we won't build the mpi_f08 module with pgi 8/9.

I should have something checked into the trunk soon (for tonight's tarball). Let's see how that does before we bring it over to v1.7 -- we might need to iterate once or twice before getting it right.

Thank you!
