I am getting some undefined references in building OpenMPI 1.5.4 and I would like to know how to work around it.


The errors look like this:


/scratch1/bloscel/builds/release/openmpi-intel/lib/libmpi.a(topology-linux.o): In function `hwloc_linux_alloc_membind':

topology-linux.c:(.text+0x1da): undefined reference to `mbind'

make: *** [main] Error 1


S ome  configure output that is probably relevant:


checking numaif.h usability... yes

checking numaif.h presence... yes

checking for numaif.h... yes

checking for set_mempolicy in -lnuma... yes

checking for mbind in -lnuma... yes

checking for migrate_pages in -lnuma... yes


The FAQ says that I should have to give –with-libnuma explicitly, but I did not do that.   Is there a problem with configure? Or the FAQ?  Or perhaps the system has a configuration peculiarity?


On another system, the configure output is different, and there are no unresolved references:


checking numaif.h usability... no

checking numaif.h presence... no

checking for numaif.h... no


What is the configure option that will make the unresolved references go away?
