This is particularly aimed at Matt since he has experience with installing mpi4py on an altix :-) I saw your post on the mpi4py list (http://tinyurl.com/ybnb6p7 ), but I'm running into another problem.
I'm trying to install the latest svn version with the stock sgimpi setup in mpi.cfg. I've also tried with intel's v10.1 compilers (v9.1 was the default).
It compiles and installs just fine, but when I try to load mpi4py.MPI it can't find the MPI libraries.

libmpi and libmpi++ are in /usr/lib, which is in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH (just in case... it should be included by default).
If you haven't run into this problem before, maybe you (or someone else) could give me some tips on tracking down the mis-config. I haven't debugged something like this before...
