[mpich-discuss] mpich2 1.0.8: problems compiling (simplemake)

                It is not a problem with MPICH2. It is caused by a problem
with time stamps on files in remotely mounted (NFS) directories that cause
the "make" utility to not work properly. If the time on all your machines is
synchronized via NTP, it should work.

Dear Rajeev,

it works. Compiling in a sub-directory in /tmp solved the problem. But I'd
like to know the reason. Or, better, I'd like to know if it will be
necessary to do this in the new releases of mpich2. I'm going to compile the
new pre-release, and I'd like to know if I need to compile in /tmp
sub-directories. In all the previous versions, I've never experienced this

Anyway, thanks a lot for the proposed solution and ... happy new year to you
and to everyone in the list.
