Subject: [OMPI users] Configuration with Intel C++ Composer 12.0.2 on OSX 10.7.5

I am having trouble configuring OpenMPI-1.6.4 with the Intel C/C++ composer (12.0.2). My OS is OSX 10.7.5.

I am not a computer whizz so I hope I can explain what I did properly:

1) In bash, I did source /opt/intel/bin/ intel64
and then echo PATH showed:

2) which icc and which icpc showed:

So that all seems okay to me. Still when I do
./configure CC=icc CXX=icpc F77=ifort FC=ifort --prefix=/opt/openmpi-1.6.4
from the folder in which the extracted OpenMPI files sit, I get

configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details

I'd really appreciate any pointers on how to solve this, because I'm running out of ideas on how to solve this (and so seems Google).
