cp2k on POWER4 running Linux

The parallel compilation finally went through after tweaking the BLACS
and SCALAPACK just right. The problem with BLACS was definitely that
the 'make clean' command wasn't working as expected for the SRC/MPI
directory, and also setting the TRANSCOMM to -DUseMpich instead of -
DUseMpi. SCALAPACK had an issue with underscores not being set
correctly as guessed. I'll list the Bmake.inc and SLmake.inc below for
anyone searching the forums and using a similar platform.

There is another issue now that I've managed to compile all the
libraries and an executable cp2k.popt. When I run any test using the
standard 'mpirun -np 8 cp2k.popt traj.inp' (or similar) the program
dies right away. An example is when I run the cp2k/tests/QS/H2O-
md.inp.

Output is listed below:

 Looking for words in the input similar to the unknown:
   'No info available yet, we will keep you informed.'

Any idea what that could mean? An issue with my mpi setup or with the
way I've compiled cp2k? I'm totally lost at this point.

Thanks!
