Right! I'm willing to test on Mips and Mipsel. Is test code available or
is it necessary to dig into assembler code (I know only x86 assembler).

I would be glad to help Open MPI since I know it is a very important
project for all kind of numerical simulations. Stupidly I programmed the
last years only on MISD (shared memory parallel computers) and not on
clusters ...
