Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problem building OpenMPI 1.4.4 with PGI 11.7 compilers
From: Samuel K. Gutierrez (samuel_at_[hidden])

I think I've seen this before.

I can't speak to the details surrounding this issue, but when I upgraded to the newest version of libtool, the problem went away <shrug>.

Take a look at "Use of GNU m4, Autoconf, Automake, and Libtool" in our HACKING file. libtool-2.4.2.tar.gz **should** work, if that's the problem that you are experiencing.

I would suggest starting with a fresh source tree, before you try again.

Hope that helps,
