Add "-DCMAKE_INSTALL_LIBDIR=lib" to avoid it trying to overwrite the lib64 symlink

The developers on OpenCoarrays recommend MPICH, so I will keep using that.
I updated the package to 1.7.2, I didn't seem to get a notification about the release.

I have an updated PKGBUILD which usees 1.7.2, but I also changed MPI to use openmpi since that is in the main repositories. I can send it to you if you like.

The latest version of OpenCoarrays (1.6.2) has been released. I would love it if someone could please update the package definition, or at least give me a quick tutorial on how to do it myself. The one caveat is that I am not running Arch Linux, so if I update it, there will be no testing...

Just to say, I have been testing the MPI implementations some more and switched to MPICH. This should be permanent.

Hi James,
Thank you very much for quick replay. I see that OpenMPI is only a dependency and it is not used for building the package, indeed I have now installed your package and successfully used with MPICH compiled manually.

On the behalf of the OpenCoarrays team thank very much for your work.

I am not sure about exact download statistics, but in the information above there is a "votes" and "popularity" section.

I used OpenMPI purely because that is what I have been using. I wanted to say you need OpenMPI or MPICH, but the this functionality isn't built in to PKGBUILDs. I would be willing to change this dependency if there are some good reasons.

Let me know how you get on with the package :)

Dear James,

the development team of OpenCoarrays (with which I have talked to) are very grateful to you for maintaining this AUR package build (me too!).

They have a question for you (they do not use Arch Linux thus ask me to work as *ambassador*): is it possible to obtain statistics on this AUR package downloads? OpenCoarrays is developed with love by a no-profit Institute (sourceryinstitute) for which this kind of statics is relevant for obtaining future funding.

Besides, I have a personal question. Reading your PKBUILD I see that you select OpenMPI rather MPICH. OpenCoarrays official instructions suggest MPICH as the preferred MPI back-end: why do you select OpenMPI?

Thank you very much for your great work, it is very appreciated!
