(And, I don't really understand any of the MPI details.) So besides maybe asking scalapack to change to autoconf :-), it seems a way forward is: 0) async: Find people that care about MPI in pkgsrc and get them to update the various packages. openmpi is at 1.10.7 released in 2018 but upstream is at 4.1.4. mpi-ch is at 3.2.1 release in 2017 and upstream is at 4.0.2. Overall the situation is very NetBSD 8 :-) 1) probably: Fix the cmake stuff so scalapack builds with mpi-ch. 2) probably: Default-on the f90 option to openmpi, pausing to modernize the Fortran mk usage (from asking for gcc47). 3) probably: Default-on the f90 option to mpi-ch. 4) Think about mpi-ch and openmpi and which should be the default, assuming both are up-to-date. I am not really comfortable flipping because of cmake breakage unless it is truly a tough call which one is better for users. Is anybody out there using mpi from pkgsrc?
