I am trying to build the latest NWChem 6.5 snapshot on OS X Yosemite 10.10.2:

EDIT: I also get the error described below when using the non-snapshot release:

I installed mpich2 and gfortran via homebrew. I have mpich 3.1.4 and gfortran 4.9.2.

This is how I am attempting to build, after unpacking the archive and renaming the directory to 6.5:

cd 6.5
export BLASOPT="-llapack -lblas"
export NWCHEM_MODULES="all"
export USE_MPI="y"
export USE_MPIF="y"
export USE_MPIF4="y"
export MPI_INCLUDE="/usr/local/include"
export MPI_LIB="/usr/local/lib"
export LIBMPI=" -lmpifort -lmpi -lpmpi -lpthread"
export NWCHEM_TOP=`pwd`
cd $NWCHEM_TOP/src
make nwchem_config 2>&1 | tee make.nwchem_config.log
make | tee build.log

It chugs along successfully for quite a while before ending here:

I was able to build it successfully against OpenBLAS. The problem appears to be with attempting to build without an external BLAS.

On Mac, you should probably use BLASOPT="-framework Accelerate", which is the version Apple provides for you.

I ran a test job that another NWChem user has identified as sensitive to BLAS choice:

The job completed in 1640 seconds when NWChem was compiled with framework Accelerate and 1670 seconds when using OpenBLAS 0.28. This was using 4 processor cores, Intel i7-4770HQ CPU @ 2.20GHz, running OS X Yosemite, GNU compilers. The mp2_si2h6 QA job showed a smaller performance difference. If there is an even more BLAS-heavy job I could try for comparison I would like to do so.

The wiki unfortunately gives bad advice for BLASOPT on Yosemite which results not just in a slow build but (IME) build failure:
