The official package fftw has MPI support since 2020-01-19

As a consequence the only thing fftw-mpi package provides additionally is static libraries (*.a). If anyone requires it, feel free to adopt the package.

I disowned the package, I don't have the time to maintain it. You can adopt it if you'd like!

@McNoggins: In that case can you apply the patch. I have used them to build fftw-mpi myself and also ran `make check` inside the src directory for fftw-3.3.7-single and fftw-3.3.7-double:

My reasons for asking these changes are:
* AVX could improve performance, and should be included if the upstream FFTW repo has it
* staticlibs (*.a) should be preserved, and are required to build other packages which rely on FFTW - in my case: p3dfft (

@jadelord: I do not have the answer to that question. I resubmitted this package to AUR for compatibility with another package which I maintain (mpb).

Is there any particular reason why the `--enable-avx` flag is avoided in the configure steps (as compared to ? Is it buggy with OpenMPI?
