Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Fwd: Problems installing in Cygwin

I guess that if you disable the vt contrib package, this is take you
one step further :) Hopefully at the end of the compile stage ... and
at the beginning of troubles with running the cygwin parallel
applications ...

Meanwhile, there is a special option to disable contrib packages.
Please add --enable-contrib-no-build=vt to your configure line and
this should do the trick.
