Did you verify that the exact same mpif77 / mpif90 is being invoked from within your Makefile as is invoked when you do it manually at a shell prompt?

> If you're invoking the exact same command in both cases (interactive shell and makefile), the *usual* cause of this kind of problem is that the "mpif90" in your Makefile is picking up a different mpif90 than the one that is picked up by your shell. Meaning: your PATH has been reset in the sub-process where "make" is executed, and so when make forks off "mpif90", it finds a different one than the one you execute interactively in the shell.
