The IBM MPI compiler is available on the machine we use for Boost result
reporting. At one point we did experiment with enabling the Boost.MPI runs
for IBM's MPI compiler however the Boost MPI toolset had trouble
configuring the IBM MPI compiler. If I recall correctly the MPI toolset
expected some type of compiler option that showed the location of the MPI
headers and libraries but the IBM MPI compiler did not provide any options
that proved useful.

In the short term, I was wondering if we should just modify our local copy
of the mpCC script to print the information in a form that could be
consumed by the Boost MPI toolset. Are the options some combination of:
-showme:compile, -showme:link, -showme, -show, -compile_info and

In parallel, I can work with the POE team to see if we can get something
more official added to the IBM MPI wrapper scripts.
