- can OMPI's configure call your configure (preferably at an m4 level,
not directly invoking ./orc/configure)
- can we name-shift all of orc's symbols to ompi_orc (just to be sure
we don't conflict with someone's already-installed orc)
We do this for a few small projects that we embed in Open MPI

True, but it would be nice/convenient if we could just ship Orc itself
-- plop in a new version whenever it is released and the configure/
build system does the Right Things for the target platform that the
user is building on. Not a deal breaker, of course -- but I figured
I'd ask. :-)
One other question: I assume that Orc emits code that is supported by
the GCC assembler. Does it support any other compiler suites?
(mainly asking about x86_64 Linux compilers, like Intel, PGI, etc.)
