[mpich-discuss] problem on configuring MPI with slurm

We should just get rid of the --with-slurm option in MPICH. It’s pretty useless for two reasons:
1. You don’t need to configure mpich with slurm at all, unless you are planning to use srun/salloc directly. You can just build mpich normally and run with mpiexec. mpiexec will internally detect that you are using a slurm environment and use srun internally.
2. If you really want to use srun/salloc, you can just build your application with mpicc -L/path/to/slurm foo.c -lpmi and it’ll pick up slurm’s PMI library. Then you can use srun/salloc.
My suggestion is, forget the slurm option. Just build mpich normally and run it with mpiexec. It’ll automatically use slurm internally.
