I understood that the intention of mpi-default is to avoid specifying
explicitly openmpi or lam (or mpich) in the dependancy list as it just
picks the one that is available. I tested on my i386 box by only
installing openmpi or only lam, which seems to work fine in both cases.
So, if lam is available on mips, it just should build now after I
repaired the bug. (Previously the mpi.h was pointed explicitely to
mpi/mpi.h. By adjusting "configure" that uses "acx_mpi.m4" now, same as
in libgpiv-mpi3 and gpivtools-mpi, I supose it should build fine now as
I am intersted to see the pbuilder log from a mips(el) box. If your box
is too small, is there anybody else on this list who can do this for me?
