As result of our joint efforts (mostly of Kevin Buckley),
I'm able to run SKaMPI benchmarks on NetBSD 5.99.22.
You can find the resulting pkgsrc package at
Patches are at:
- patch-aa deals with RPATH, it was needed at some point and I want to
revisit it to check if it is needed still;
- patches patch-a[b-g] deal with deficiency in OpenMPI build system,
which doesn't allow using our libltdl and insist on using
non-functioning bundled one;
- patch-ah implements configuration using getifaddrs,
it is unclear why OpenMPI skips link local addresses preventing thus
zeroconf usage, I have disabled it after some thought,
it is unclear what to do for IPv6 configuration in similar case,
I've left that part unchanged;
- patches patch-a[ijk] adapt to packaging conventions.
OpenMPI package will be in the next quarterly stable snapshot/branch 2009Q4.
Compiler wrappers seem to work inside pkgsrc framework, I haven't tested
them outside yet (though by Kevin words they should work outside pkgsrc).
Intermediate packages worked on Dragonfly 2.5.1 and FreeBSD 6.3.
