Correct. The only MIPS machines most of the developers have access
to are some SGI workstations sitting in a lab in Indiana University's
fine arts building. The fine arts grad students get really confused
when you start firing up MPI jobs on the workstations, so we don't
test on that platform very often ;).

I believe the workstations are at least R10K, at one time Open MPI
has run on 64 bit MIPS machines.

Can you send config.log to the list? It has oodles of information
that will help figure out what is going on.
