Ioapi 3.2-20200828 m3tools build error - "ld: cannot find" several libraries

Following instructions from here: CMAQ/ at master · USEPA/CMAQ · GitHub

I was able to build the non-MPI version, i.e. Linux2_x86_64ifort, but am running into m3tools build errors with Linux2_x86_64ifortmpi

OS: RHEL 8.1
icc/ifort version: (20200925)
Open MPI version: 4.1.0 (configured with --enable-static)
ioapi version: 3.2-20200828
netcdf-c version: 4.7.4
netcdf-fortran version: 4.5.3

netcdf-c configured with “–disable-netcdf4 --disable-netcdf-4 --disable-dap” Build and check succeeded

netcdf-fortran build and check succeeded.


  • use BIN=Linux2_x86_64ifortmpi

Build of libioapi.a succeeds. Partial output of “nm libioapi.a”:

But building m3tools gives these errors:

All those “missing” libs are in /usr/lib64 as usual, though they are all shared libs. libpmix is in a non-standard location, but the lib directory is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Would appreciate any pointers on where to look to get this build working. Thanks in advance.

Either install the static libraries, or remove the “-Bstatic” flag from the link-flags.
