I should qualify that statement: many things have been resolved, but there's a few more things to go. A new rc will come when they have been resolved:
I just tried tonight's nightly tarball for the 1.5 branch (1.5.5rc2r25906).
I found the following issues, which I wad previously reported against 1.5.5rc1, for which I did NOT find a corresponding ticket in "report/15". My apologies is I've missed a ticket, or if any of these were deferred to 1.6.x (as was Lion+PGI, for instance).
+ GNU Make required for "make clean" due to use of non-standard $(RM)
Reported in http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2011/12/10184.php
+ MacOS 10.4 on ppc fails linking libvt-mpi.la (multiply defined symbols)
Reported in http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2011/12/10090.php
My MacOS 10.4/x86 machine is down, but I don't believe it had this problem w/ rc1.
+ ROMIO uses explicit MAKE=make, causing problems if one builds ompi w/ gmake
Reported in http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/devel/2012/01/10300.php
One more for the list:
The 1.5 branch needs the same fixes to the -fvisibility probe that Jeff and I have been discussing off-list for hwloc-1.3.2. Basically this comes down to the fact that the 1.4 branch of OMPI has a "stronger" configure probe for -fvisibility than the 1.5 branch or trunk, and thus known NOT to use -fvisibility with broken icc compilers. This may come down to a simple CMR, if one could track down when the probe was strengthened.
