Thank you so much, Jeff. It works!!!

I followed instructions in INSTALL file to make a new directory ./build. But
when I configured it in this new directory, I got "permission denied" error.
That's why I used "sudo".

Now I try to configure it directly under the openmpi-X.Y.Z directory:

./configure --prefix=.../openmpi
make all
sudo make install

test with mpi_helloworld.f90, it works just fine.

Thanks again for your time and help!
