Hi Francesco. I did compile (and successfully run) Octopus 1.4 on an Opteron
cluster using the portland compiler version 5.2-4. However, I did have to
compile locally all libraries using the same compiler (otherwise it would
crash unexpectedly), and I had to specify at configure time that I wanted to
use the portland C compiler as well, since I had problems linking objects
compiled by pgf90 and objects compiled by gcc. The only libraries I did not
recompile were the lapack/blas libraries, since I used the optimised ones
provided by AMD for opterons (acml), which come in many flavours including
one for the nag compiler. I did not try with the CVS version of Octopus,
though. I hope this helps you...
