I want to build a version of OpenMPI v4 to run on a cluster where some ranks are IBM POWER (little endian) and other ranks are x86_64. The OpenMPI wiki says that I need to define OMPI_ENABLE_HETEROGENEOUS_SUPPORT so that structure padding will be inserted as appropriate to make this work; but a quick 'grep' in the source code finds that this macro isn't used anywhere.
Can I build OpenMPI for such a cluster nowadays ? T J (Chris) Ward, IBM Research.
