I attempted to compile NWChem 6.6 using OpenMPI (with Mallanox mxm, hcoll and fca) however I encounter this error

/home/users/astar/ihpc/chiensh/nwchem-openmpi/src/tools/install/lib/libga.a(nbutil.o): In function `get_armcihdl':
nbutil.c:(.text+0xaa): undefined reference to `ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE'
nbutil.c:(.text+0x134): undefined reference to `ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE'
/home/users/astar/ihpc/chiensh/nwchem-openmpi/src/tools/install/lib/libga.a(nbutil.o): In function `get_armci_nbhandle':

nbutil.c:(.text+0x2cf): undefined reference to `ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE'
nbutil.c:(.text+0x3c7): undefined reference to `ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE'
/home/users/astar/ihpc/chiensh/nwchem-openmpi/src/tools/install/lib/libga.a(nbutil.o):nbutil.c:(.text+0x54d): more undefined references to `ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE' follow

How can I get it fix this problem?

Here is the log files, also include the compilation log building for NWChem and OpenMPI, and the script to build NWchem

Nothing looks suspicious to me.
Could you do the following
cd $NWCHEM_TOP/src/tools/build
make clean
make >& make.log

Upload make.log afterwards

Hi Edo,
Thank you for your reply!
Basically I have repeat the same procedure for few times, I think the source of problem is in building GA, as you can see below, "ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE" is undefined in libga.a

[chiensh@stratus lib]$ pwd
/home/users/astar/ihpc/chiensh/nwchem-openmpi/src/tools/install/lib
[chiensh@stratus lib]$ ls
libarmci.a libarmci.la libcomex.a libcomex.la libga.a libga.la
[chiensh@stratus lib]$ nm libga.a |grep ARMCI_INIT
U ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE
U ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE

For the libga.a that was built by intel mpi, ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE is correctly handled by the pre processor
[chiensh@stratus lib]$ cd /home/users/astar/ihpc/chiensh/nwchem-mpipr/src/tools/install/lib
[chiensh@stratus lib]$ ls
libarmci.a libarmci.la libcomex.a libcomex.la libga.a libga.la
[chiensh@stratus lib]$ nm libga.a |grep ARMCI_INIT
[chiensh@stratus lib]$

Here is the build-make.log and link.log

BTW can you take a look of my another post about (T) calculation cannot finish? I can release it to users for production calculations on this system if any one of these versions is working, but seems that none of them work correctly.

I am at a loss trying to reproduce this problem.
ARMCI_INIT_HANDLE is not a symbol., but a macro, instead.
I don't understand why you should use OpenMPi instead of Intel MPI, either

Yes it is a macro, I think somehow it was not handled correctly by the preprocessor and directly past to the linker as a symbol...

Mellanox come with a set of infiniband tools (http://www.mellanox.com/page/products_dyn?product_family=135&menu_section=73), and based on some evaluation from third parties, it significantly improve the network performance. However, this set of tools so far only works with OpenMPI, so I would like to compare their performance on NWChem.

My conclusion is that something is not working 100% in your OpenMPI installation when compiling nbutil.c
You will have to debug what is happening (the cpp step might be the culprit)
