The configure script is trying to run the command

You will need to figure out how to get this to work correctly; probably your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable needs to be updated. Be sure that you can compile
simple MPI programs (such as the test programs that come with the

This is weird, since you report that the serial compilation went OK, and (as
far I as know), the same preprocessing program is used for both serial and
parallel processing.

Try seeing what response you get from "which cpp" and "cpp --version". Also,
compare what the FPP variable is set to in the serial config.h file.
