as far as i can remember, _all_ versions of PGI that manage to compile
cp2k have this flaw. which is really hard to believe. the problems
PGI don't end there. there are several files that even without
take 15-30 minutes to compile (hours with optimization), even though
is essentially nothing in them that would require any optimization.
it is a quite frustrating situation. it is a mystery to me, that cray
still pushing PGI so hard...
i have a hack that allows to build cp2k on an xt3 using g95 that
seems to be working well (and at very little performance impact).
none of the cray machines that i have currently access to has a
pathscale compilers installed, but i know from other software projects
that they are not much better than PGI in terms of conformance
to fortran 95. :-(
