Subject: [Boost-build] Compiling Boost.MPI and mpich2 under Suse Linux

I am trying to compile Boost.MPI with Mpich2 under Suse Linux 10.x.
After having built Mpich2, involing ./bjam install I am presented with the
following error below, however, recompiling mpich2 with -fPIC does not help

mpich2$ ./configure CXXFLAGS=-fPIC; make; make install

Does anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks a lot!


/mnt/thor2/michael/tools/mpich2/lib/libmpich.a(attr_get.o): relocation
R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared
object; recompile with -fPIC
/mnt/thor2/michael/tools/mpich2/lib/libmpich.a: could not read symbols: Bad
