When you use sudo, the shell replaces your existing environ and executes the root's login script - is that setting the path to icpc? You can check with "sudo which icpc".

I am working on building openmpi-1.6 on ubuntu 12.04 using the intel compiler suite. My configure command was:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/lib CC=icc CXX=icpc F77=ifort FC=ifort

which completed successfully, as did 'make all'

I am having trouble with the 'sudo make install' step. Specifically,

It seems to be a similar problem to this thread: http://www.open-mpi.org/community/lists/users/2010/11/14913.php but I cannot seem to get it resolved. From what I can tell, libtool cannot figure out where icpc is. From what I know, that location is set in my .bashrc script with the line:

source /opt/intel/bin/compilervars.sh intel64

In addition, I explicitly set it as:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/intel/composer_xe_2011_sp1.11.339/bin/intel64/

What am I missing so that I can get libtool to see where icpc is?
