Hi - we're considering using MPITB ( 
on a heterogenous cluster but in order to so will it appears we'll 
need to rebuild both LAM and Octave: 

So before I head down that road, I have two questons regarding 

        (1) does Octave still support MPI? The configure script 
            appears to suggest support for MPI but I couldn't 
            find any information on how to use it. 

            Also, the only way I could configure Octave for the 
            LAM implementation of MPI was to use the following 

                --with-mpi="lam -lmpi" 
           which works for Solaris but breaks the configuration 
           script for Linux (claiming the "short" data type is 

        (2) does Octave still support the --enable-lite-kernel? 
            This option is in the manual but I couldn't find it 
            the configuration script for 2.1.71.
