Sorry for the delay in replying -- per the other thread, let's see if
the mpicc problem was fixed last night, and let's see the configure
output files to try to get an idea about what the problem was in
regards to the opal missing symbol.

To be honest, however, none of the current Open MPI members support
the Alpha platform. Proper development and maintenance may therefore
be somewhat difficult (indeed, I have no customers who use Alpha, so
it's hard for me to justify spending time on Alpha-specific issues).

That being said, Open MPI is an open source project and we welcome
the contributions of others! :-)
