Hi, Mark,
When I installed HYPRE, I simply did "./configure --prefix=/usr/local/hypre2.0", then make, make install.  All libraries seems to be static libraries. 
As for openmpi, I did "./configure --prefix=/usr/local/openmpi --enable-static --disable-shared", then, make all install (elmer prefers statically linked).  So, all openmpi static library should resides in /usr/local/openmpi.  A simple hello_mpi.c (.f90) ran fine.
During elmer configuration, one of the steps is to build blas/parpack libraries.  Which was successful (I got libparpack.a under ELMER_HOME/lib).  It is not clear to me why at the final step of elmer configuration, it complains about not finding HYPRE and parpack.
I also suspect about the /usr/lib64 business.  Trying to sort out whether this is an openMPI issue (on 64 bit SuSE) or elmer issue.
Thanks a lot!

Are you pointing to the 64-bit build of HYPRE?  For that matter, like Jeff asked, are you sure that each library path that you are defining goes to a 64-bit library path?
Good luck,

What puzzles me is that, on 32 bit OpenSUSE, I was able to compile elmer
solver without any issue using the same script.  I am planning to use
HYPRE library, but, configure file indicated that it cannot find hypre
either which is another puzzle to me.  I will look into this further.



Is it possible that this could be a problem with /usr/lib64 as opposed
to /usr/lib?

Just a thought...
