Also, please be aware that we haven't done any testing of OMPI on Lion, so this is truly new ground.

Are you sure you are building against your macports version of openmpi and not the one that ships w/ lion. In the trace back are items 4-9, that end w/ x86_64pg from the pgi compiler. You said you are using pgf90 and pgcc but in the configure input it looks like gcc is being used on lion.

I'm trying to run CMAQ - an air quality model developed by the US EPA - on a Mac (Lion) using OpenMPI (1.5.3) installed with MacPorts.

I am able to run CMAQ in parallel, and am able to run small programs that use OpenMPI.

I set the OpenMPI environment variables to use pgf90/pgcc (10.9) as my compiler.  Using PGI because some of the code I need to build is fortran 77 ( *sigh* ), and for some other reasons. 

The error I get is:

mpirun noticed that process rank 1 with PID 72547 on node exited on signal 11 (Segmentation fault: 11).

I don't expect anyone to know the solution from this brief error message, however I was wondering if anyone has insight on how I might debug this?  I am too new to both OpenMPI and CMAQ to be served that well from this traceback.

I'm told by others in my research group that CMAQ with OpenMPI on Linux works fine, and that the error I'm getting is very similar to the error others got when trying this on a Mac (Snow Leopard) with ifort.. before they gave up...

OpenMPI was configured with:
configure.args  --sysconfdir=${prefix}/etc/${name} \
                --includedir=${prefix}/include/${name} \
                --bindir=${prefix}/lib/${name}/bin \
                --mandir=${prefix}/share/man \

# enable build on Lion
if {$os.major} >= 11} {
        configure.compiler       gcc-4.2

The --with-memory-manager is there because I saw it fix potentially similar problems in other postings to this Mailing list.  It didn't make a difference though.
