FWIW, even if MPI_VERSION and MPI_SUBVERSION are set correctly, there’s no guarantee that these types are available.  Types are only defined based on what compiler you use.  For example, if you use a C89 only compiler, these types will not be available.

configure is the only reliable check for these.
