  Maybe is was not clear enough ;-). The $1_<FLAGS> do not work i had to
use CPPFLAGS instead of $1_CPPFLAGS else the test fails. On our site the
torque library is found in /usr/lib so that can be found else we also
must set the LDFLAGS flag.

I have the right values of include/library directory but they are
handled as directory prefix by the OMPI_CHECK_PACKAGE macro and not as

What i tried to accomplish was that the library name was set by a
variable. So if torque decided to use another name for the library we do
not have to change the macro again.
