[petsc-users] Configuring petsc with Intel MPI

Dear Petsc developers and users,
we are building petsc with intel compiler and intel mpi.
In doing so we provide to the petsc configuration script a directory 
where the MPI is located.

The problem is that petsc takes the non-thread safe mpi library 
(libmpi.so), but we need a threadsafe one (libmpi_mt.so)
We had to specify the exact library to solve the issue.
Question: is there any better way to insure that petsc picks the thread 
safe mpi library during configuration?

Thank you,
