Make sure that your compilers are all creaqting code for the same architecture (i386 or x86-64). ifort usually installs such that the 64 bit version of the compiler is the dfault while the apple gcc compiler creates i386 output by default. Check the architecture of the .o files with file *.o and if the gcc output needs to be x86_64 add the -m64 flag to the c and c++ flags. That has worked for me. You shouldn't need the intel c/c++ compilers. I find the configure error message to be a little bit cryptic and not very insightful.

You probably want to use all the intel compilers, not just ifort.

  Dear Sir:

I think that this problem must be solved, and maybe some information 
should be given in the archives.  But, I miss the right answer in my 
searching area, so please allow me to repeat.

I tried to install openmpi-1.2.5 to a new xserve (Xeon) with Leopard.  
Intel compiler is used for Fortran.

My options for configure was
along with
--with-rsh="ssh -x" --enable-shared --without-cs-fs --without-memory-

Then, I saw an error message.  This says

checking if C and Fortran 77 are link compatible... no
* It appears that your Fortran 77 compiler is unable to link against
* object files created by your C compiler.  This generally indicates
* either a conflict between the options specified in CFLAGS and FFLAGS

configure: error: C and Fortran 77 compilers are not link compatible.  
Can not continue.

I suppose that the problem is the default selection for the 
architecture (32 or 64 bit).  I don't know the correct options.  Of 
course, I like to use 64-bit architecture as far as it works.
