[petsc-dev] Trying to get the CMake instructions to work, unsuccessfully

Hmm.  I see in my configure.log that configureCMake succeeds:

TEST configureCMake from 
TESTING: configureCMake from 
   Check various things about cmake
Checking for program /usr/bin/cmake...found
           Defined make macro "CMAKE" to "/usr/bin/cmake"

But farther down in the configure.log I find

        Invoking: ['/usr/bin/cmake', '/home/rmills/proj/petsc-dev', 
'-DCMAKE_C_FLAGS= -Wall -Wwrite-strings -Wno-strict-aliasing 
-Wno-unknown-pragmas -g', 
'-DCMAKE_Fortran_FLAGS=  -Wall -Wno-unused-variable -g', 
     Booting CMake in PETSC_ARCH failed:
CMake process failed with status 1

in the output associated with configureFortranFlush.  So it looks like the 
CMake "boot" is failing.  Can you offer any advice on how to proceed?
