openmpi is available on sparc and mpi-default-dev points to openmpi.
could it be that boost::mpi is compiled with lam but since life uses
boost::mpi and detected openmpi
everything is compiled with openmpi
then the linker expects boost::mpi libs to provide the openmpi symbols and
fails because it was compiled with lam ?
I think that is the problem.

If boost::mpi  was indeed compiled with lam, would it be possible to  upload
boost::mpi with openmpi linkage ?

Best regards
