Hi Maurice,

Maybe I miss the issue. I have not look at mumps and related since... years. :-)
(Neither your patches. :-D)

If mumps depends explicitly on openmpi, then '--with-inputs' can
rewrite the direct dependencies, by providing say mpich instead of
If petsc* depends explicitly on openmpi and on mumps (which depends
explicitly on openmpi too), then '--with-inputs=openmpi=mpich'  will
*only* rewrite the dependency of petsc but not of mumps. So it ends
with petsc compiled with mpich and mumps with openmpi.

Still considering this (fictive) example, where:
 - petsc depends on openmpi(1) and mumps
 - mumps depends on openmpi(2)
The openmpi(2) is an implicit dependency for petsc and '--with-inputs'
does not work.

*because I know better PETSc than Scotch. ;-)

Are 'pt-scotch' and 'scalapack' compiled with 'mpich' or 'openmpi'?

Because maybe "mumps-openmpi --with-input=openmpi=mpich" compiles
'mumps' using 'mpich' as MPI but compile 'pt-scotch' or 'scalapack'
with the default implementation which seems 'openmpi'.

Thank you for your work.

All the best,
