Sorry about the delay in getting around to this. We were tied up with
the mpich-3.0 release.
I'm still missing the point of this environment variable. Once you have
a pre-built mpich installation, you can install mpich in any location of
your choosing using:
% make install prefix=<foobar>
This overrides the --prefix passed to configure. In this case, you
should ship the prebuilt mpich to your customers and run the above "make
install" command to place it in the right location. Some of our other
vendor partners follow the same model as well.
