The easiest way to work around grungy, ugly build systems is to create
some name like "mpif77" (or "xlf" ;-) and write a script which does
the right thing under the hood -- add extra arguments, delete
arguments that aren't right, link the local mpi. I've done this a
bunch of times; it's not that hard to take something that is quite
complex and has never been ported to Linux and compile it that way.
