Subject: [OMPI users] Problem building OpenMPI with PGI compilers
From: David Turner (dpturner_at_[hidden])

Hi all,

My first ever attempt to build OpenMPI. Platform is Sun Sunfire x4600
M2 servers, running Scientific Linux version 5.3. Trying to build
OpenMPI 1.4 (as of today; same problems yesterday with 1.3.4).
Trying to use PGI version 10.0.

As a first attempt, I set CC, CXX, F77, and FC, then did "configure"
and "make". Make ends with:

libtool: link: pgCC --prelink_objects --instantiation_dir Template.dir
   .libs/mpicxx.o .libs/intercepts.o .libs/comm.o .libs/datatype.o
.libs/win.o .libs/file.o -Wl,--rpath
-Wl,--rpath -Wl,/global/common/tesla/usg/openmpi/1.4/lib
-ldl -lnsl -lutil -lpthread
pgCC-Error-Unknown switch: --instantiation_dir
make[2]: *** [] Error 1

So I Googled "instantiation_dir openmpi", which led me to:

where I see:

There's still something wrong with the C++ support, however; I get
errors about a template directory switch when compiling the C++ MPI
bindings (doesn't happen with PGI 9.0). Still working on this... it
feels like it's still a Libtool issue because OMPI is not putting in
this compiler flag as far as I can tell:

/bin/sh ../../../libtool --tag=CXX --mode=link pgCC -g -version-info
0:0:0 -export-dynamic -o -rpath /home/jsquyres/bogus/lib
mpicxx.lo intercepts.lo comm.lo datatype.lo win.lo file.lo
../../../ompi/ -lnsl -lutil -lpthread
libtool: link: tpldir=Template.dir
libtool: link: rm -rf Template.dir
libtool: link: pgCC --prelink_objects --instantiation_dir Template.dir
.libs/mpicxx.o .libs/intercepts.o .libs/comm.o .libs/datatype.o
.libs/win.o .libs/file.o -Wl,--rpath
-Wl,/users/jsquyres/svn/ompi-1.3/ompi/.libs -Wl,--rpath
-Wl,/users/jsquyres/svn/ompi-1.3/orte/.libs -Wl,--rpath
-Wl,/users/jsquyres/svn/ompi-1.3/opal/.libs -Wl,--rpath
-Wl,/home/jsquyres/bogus/lib -L/users/jsquyres/svn/ompi-1.3/orte/.libs
-L/users/jsquyres/svn/ompi-1.3/opal/.libs ../../../ompi/.libs/
/users/jsquyres/svn/ompi-1.3/opal/.libs/ -ldl -lnsl -lutil
pgCC-Error-Unknown switch: --instantiation_dir
make: *** [] Error 1

I noticed the comment "doesn't happen with PGI 9.0", so I re-did the
entire process with PGI 9.0 instead of 10.0, but I get the same error!

Any suggestions? Let me know if I should provide full copies of the
configure and make output. Thanks!

Best regards,
David Turner
