[petsc-users] PETSc with Julia Binary Builder

As you mention in [4], the proximate cause of the configure failure is this link error [8]:

Naively, that looks like a problem to be resolved at the level of the C++ compiler and MPI.

Unless there are wrinkles of this build process that I don't understand (likely), this [6] looks non-standard to me:

	./configure --prefix=${prefix} \
		-with-mpi-include="${includedir}" \

Is it possible to configure using  --with-mpi-dir, instead of the separate --with-mpi-include and --with-mpi-lib commands? 

As an aside, maybe Satish can say more, but I'm not sure if it's advisable to override variables in the make command [7].

One of the first things to get going is to use Julia's binary builder [1] to wrap more scalar, real, and int type builds of the PETSc library; the current distribution is just Real, double, Int32. I've been working on a PR for this [2] but have been running into some build issues on some architectures [3].

> For those that don't know, Julia's binary builder system essentially allows users to download binaries directly from the web for any system that the Julia Programing language distributes binaries for. So a (desktop) user can get MPI, PETSc, etc. without the headache of having to build anything from scratch; obviously on clusters you would still want to use system MPIs and what not.
