Dear Brian,

Previously my CC environment variable was set to cc:

mighell% printenv CC

I then set the CC environment variable to gcc:

mighell% setenv CC gcc
mighell% printenv CC

and then tried to build the package

mighell% ./ ~/pkg/openmpi/src/openmpi-1.0rc3.tar.gz ~/pkg/openmpi/
--> Configuration options:
    Package Name:   openmpi
    Prefix:         /Users/mighell/pkg/openmpi/

The output file disk.out apparently does not exist; I could not find any file called disk.out on my machine.

Dear Brian,

It must be something else because cc *is* gcc

 mighell% which cc

mighell% ls -l /usr/bin/cc

It looks like for some reason you set your C compiler to cc instead
of gcc. This causes some problems with libtool if your Objective C
compiler is found as gcc. Can you try making sure $CC isn't set to
cc in your environment or in the build script and see if that helps?
