configure --with-mpe


I am trying to build hdf5 1.8.6 with MPE support, i.e.:

configure --prefix=/home/orf/hdf5mpe --enable-fortran
--enable-parallel --with-mpe=/home/orf/mpe

It builds and configure finds the MPE include and lib directory. However:



                  Parallel HDF5: yes
             High Level library: yes
                   Threadsafety: no
            Default API Mapping: v18
With Deprecated Public Symbols: yes
         I/O filters (external): deflate(zlib)
         I/O filters (internal): shuffle,fletcher32,nbit,scaleoffset
                     Direct VFD: no
                        dmalloc: no
Clear file buffers before write: yes
           Using memory checker: no
         Function Stack Tracing: no
                           GPFS: no
      Strict File Format Checks: no
   Optimization Instrumentation: no
       Large File Support (LFS): yes
             H5dump Packed Bits: yes

Note the MPE: field is blank. And, when I run make test and run my
code linked to the libraries, MPE stuff is not activated. And, in

/* Define if we have MPE support */
/* #undef H5_HAVE_MPE */

I suspect it's not being built?

Also, from the output of the configure script:

And filnally:

(no references to mpe stuff).
