I know that with 1.3a1xxxx I a looking at a development release.
HOwever I do need the SGE (GridEngine) support and I could not find
a download for a stable (or any other) 1.2 release.

So I downloaded 1.3a1r12121 and tried to configure it.

In my configuration I use

--with-mx=/opt/mx (where the MX software is installed); also
--with-mx-libdir=/opt/mx/lib64, because I build for 64 bit only.

Then I use the Sun Studio11 compilers and the configuration fails


--- MCA component btl:mx (m4 configuration macro)
checking for MCA component btl:mx compile mode... dso
checking myriexpress.h usability... no
checking myriexpress.h presence... no
checking for myriexpress.h... no

configure: error: MX support requested but not found. Aborting

I have tried everything, entering under CFLAGS etc


--with-mx=/opt/mx/include ....

each the configure fails with the same error.

Yes, mx is definitely installed, and yes the path to mx is definitely
/opt/mx ...

Any ideas ....
