This means the MPI library you are using does not support MPI_IN_PLACE even
though it is MPI2 and part of the standard. Use -mpich instead of -mpich2 as
the argument to configure. Alternatively edit your config.h file and remove
Then make clean and recompile.
This should, I think, fix it.
All the best
