Subject: Re: [OMPI users] bug in mpif90? OMPI_FC envvar does not work with 'use mpi'

AFAIK the GNU people change the Fotran Module syntax every time they get any
chance for doing it :-(

So openmpi compiled with 4.4.6 (sys-default for RHEL 6.x) definitely does not
work with 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 versions of gfortran.

Intel 'ifort' compiler build modules which are compatible from 11.x through 13.x

So, the recommended solution is to build an own version of Open MPI with any
compiler you use.


P.S. As Hristo said, changing the Fortran compiler vendor and using the
precompiled Fortran header would never work: the syntax of these .mod files is
not standatised at all.
