We do this on all machines. But the code is hacky - and previously
didn't work well with cray compilers - where all MODULES get
auotomatically linked in.

We normally do:


[Jed has been advocating removing some of the combinations here. Or one can look at
improving this complicated piece of code - not sure if thats possible.]. 

With Cray compilers this results in a huge [repeated] library list of
all the module libraries loaded in the link command. Previously this
caused problems [i.e link errors] - and using the following was
simpler and worked.

--with-clib-autodetect=0 --with-cxxlib-autodetect=0 --with-fortranlib-autodetect=0

Looks like with the newer compilers this doesn't work anymore - and requires:
--with-clib-autodetect=0 --with-cxxlib-autodetect=0 --with-fortranlib-autodetect=0 LIBS=-lstdc++

Or we should look at improving the default mode:
--with-clib-autodetect=1 --with-cxxlib-autodetect=1 --with-fortranlib-autodetect=1
