Thanks Matthias for your reply

I know that MPI_Finalized is not available before MPI v2.0 but exactly that
is my problem
My goal is to use Boost.MPI for a MPI Implementation which at maximum
supports MPI v1.1. And I thought this is the case because I read sth. about
MPI 1.1 on the Boost.MPI Documentation but unfortunately Boost.MPI needs
MPI_Finalized which is available not before MPI v2.0.
Now I wanted to know if this is a "mistake" in the Boost.MPI implementation
to speak about MPI v1.1 but implement it for at least MPI v2.0 and if not
how to circumvent this problem to get a working implementation for MPI v1.1
I commented out all occurences of MPI_Finalized in the source of Boost.MPI
as described in one of my earlier posts and since then gcc allowed me to
compile it. But because I just can see a tiny part of the whole I wanted to
know if someone else tried this before or someone can tell me what
sideffects this changes could introduce. Maybe there is a better option than
commenting it out ( using MPI v2.0 is not an option :D )
