Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Question on ./configure error on Tru64unix (OSF1) v5.1B-6 for openmpi-1.6
From: Jeff Squyres (jsquyres_at_[hidden])

To be honest, I don't think we've ever tested on Tru64, so I'm not surprised that it doesn't work. Indeed, I think that it is unlikely that we will ever support Tru64. :-(
