Don't have suggestions for FindPETSc.cmake - however our current recommendation is to use pkgconf [from cmake] to detect petsc.

GridPACK uses CMake for its build system and relies on Jed Brown’s FindPETSc.cmake module, along with the FindPackageMultipass.cmake module to identify PETSc. The tests for PETSc are currently failing with

The PETSC_LIBRARY_SINGLE error is new and one that I haven’t seen in past attempts to build at NERSC. My recollection was that the FindMPI module was not geared towards identifying the MPI compiler wrappers on Crays and that had a tendency to mess everything else up.
