The attached log does not show libtool options. Is it possible to reproduce and obtain the output of `./libtool —config`?

Those options are libtool options that supposed to be passed down to linker. It looks like the libtool is misconfigured. Could you do `make V=1` and attach a more verbose log?

I am trying without success to install mpich3.3.1 on virtual machine with AMD EPYC Processors and the AOCC2.0.0 compiler.

This is what I did and the error I get:

export PREFIX=/opt/modules/packages
export MPICH_HOME=$PREFIX/mpich/3.3.1-aocc2.0.0

export CC=clang
export CXX=clang++
export FC=flang
export F77=flang

mkdir -p $MPICH_HOME
tar xvf mpich-3.3.1.tar.gz
cd mpich-3.3.1

./configure --prefix=$MPICH_HOME


clang-8: error: unsupported option '--whole-archive'

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

Any idea how to sort this out?
