Subject: Re: [OMPI users] What architecture? X86_64, that's what architecture!

Thanks for taking the time to follow up on this.  Apparently there's some kind of issue with PGI and OS X 10.4.11/Intel, at least according to the guy at Portland Group I've been working with.  Presumably they'll get back to me at some point...

Is this something that's been seen by others?  I'm not the world's  
greatest software stud and this is just a step along the path to my  
real objective, which is making my own software run on this beast

Suggestions, tips, and clever insults are welcome.  Thanks,

The configure script should have prevented that from happening (and  
indeed does with the GNU compilers).  I don't have a copy of the PGI  
compilers for OS X to test with, so I can't debug this without some  
more information.  What changes did you make to configure, what  
options did you specify to configure, and what was the full output of
