Subject: Re: [OMPI users] PGI 10.9 build failures

I'm afraid that this is a bug in the PGI compiler -- Open MPI uses the offsetof() macro in several places throughout its code base.

This is why we put in the configure test that tells you that your compiler does not support it -- we got a lot of reports of this issue during the build phase of Open MPI, so we decided to put in a specific configure test that would tell you if your compiler was buggy.

Sorry. :-(
