[mpich-discuss] Building the HP-UX MPICH library --Question

Some advice please!

We have an application that uses MPICH-1 on HP-UX.  We built the MPICH library back in 1999 using MPICH-1.1.1.  Today, we cannot link to it, probably because the newer HP compilers are no compatible with that old library.  Our application is basically a FORTRAN 77 code.

In order to bring us up to date, I believe we need to have a current version of the MPICH library for HP-UX.  Should we build the HP-UX library from the latest MPICH-1 source as we did a long time ago, or should we jump to MPICH-2?  If we go to MPICH-2, is there an HP-UX library that we can use without building the library ourselves?

Thank you
