checking for tm_init in -ltorque... no
configure: error: TM support requested but not found. Aborting
Oddly enough, if you have already configured with an older version of TORQUE, you can build open-mpi with TORQUE 4.2 installed, so it can find the function definitions when compiling, its just for some reason it doesn't find them in the configure script.
This is why I think that something in the configure script is assuming that libtorque was compiled with gcc.
Right, the configure output to stdout/stderr isn't very useful in diagnosing why a test failed. The config.log file generated by configure will have much more information.
