I seem to recall this CFLAGS issue with the A++ configure, which is why the Mac install instructions probably have you pass the compiler arguments via the --with-CC and --with-CXX options.
Try this:
./configure --with-CC="mpixlc_r -qarch=450d -qtune=450" --with- CXX="mpixlcxx_r -qarch=450d -qtune=450" --prefix=`pwd`

I am trying to build Overture.v24 on Blue Gene P (BG/P).

In an attempt to add a BG/P configuration for A++, I looked for the following config file mentioned in the A++ README file:


but was not able to find the file or the directory mentioned in the A ++ directory tree.

I was able to build A++ without errors with the following configure command:

./configure --with-CC=mpixlc_r --with-CFLAGS="-qarch=450d - qtune=450" --with-CXX=mpixlcxx_r --with-CXXFLAGS="-qarch=450d - qtune=450" --prefix=`pwd`

However, the flags did not seem to be passed:

mpixlc_r -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../.. -I../../include -c `test -f common_func.c || echo './'`common_func.c

mpixlcxx_r -o resize resize.o -L/home/jpbernst/Code/ Overture/A++P++-0.8.0/A++/install/lib -L../src -lApp -lApp_static - lApp -lm

Is this a known issue?

Returning to the BG/P config issue, I tried to hack :


in order to add a Bg/P setup without success. Is there documentation available for adding a machine config? I was not able to find any on the Overture webpage.
