We would like to switch to using mpich2 on the arches where openmpi is
not supported, but some packages fail to build from source when using
mpich2. It seems that for some of them, it is caused by build systems
expecting to find mpi.h in /usr/lib/mpich2/include/ (as it is the case
for other MPI implementations), while it is shipped in
By default, mpi.h should installed in $prefix/include, which seems to be
what you need (prefix = /usr/lib/mpich2). So, unless you give an
--includedir option to configure, this should work the way you expect it
to. Maybe I'm not understanding the problem correctly here?
