Subject: Re: [OMPI users] errors returned from openmpi-1.2.7 source code

I don't quite understand the format of this file, but at first glance,
you shouldn't need the following lines:

export LIBMPI = -lmpi

export MPIDIR=/nfs/sjafer/phd/openMPI/installed
export LDFLAGS +=-L$(MPIDIR)/lib
export INCLUDES_CPP += -I$(MPIDIR)/include

It also doesn't seem like the last 2 arguments of this line are a good
idea (the linker should automatically put /usr/lib and /lib in your
search path, if appropriate):

export LDFLAGS+=-L. -L$/usr/lib -L$/lib

I also notice:

export CPP=mpic++
export CC=mpiCC

I think you want "mpicc" for CC (note the lower case) -- mpiCC is the C
++ compiler (mpic++ and mpiCC are synonyms).

This might solve your problem.
