When you use the "-mpi" configure switch, the Makefile assumes that the loader
knows where to find the mpi libraries. Since this is not the case for you,
you will need to add something to the $LOADLIB variable in config.h to point
to the correct location. Depending on how familiar you are with your
supercomputer, you may need to ask help from the sys admins there.

...good luck...dac
