Issue 1321: arpack-ng compile with Intel MPI fails

Reported by w poely86, Oct 7, 2013

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Compile arpack-ng with Intel Fortran Compiler and Intel MPI

Expected result: working library

Actual result: failed make

The configure script doesn't detect Intel MPI correctly. The patch 
in attachment fixes that.

The problem with your patch is that you patched a generated file.
It is coming from m4/libtool.m4 which should not be modified by 
us... I will think about this issue.

OK, I will have a look to file it at the GNU libtool.

This is already fixed upstream in libtool[1]. This version of 
libtool bundled with arpack-ng is just too old. In attachment is a 
patch that updates autoconf, automake and libtool to more recent 
versions. This fixes the problem.

The patch is quite big but it's just the result of 'autoreconf -f 
-i'. I've only changed 2 lines in (version check 
libtool). All the rest is autogenerated.

Excellent. Thanks! 

I slightly updated your commit (use of automake 1.14)

After a pull, there is now a (dead) symbol link in the root 
directory: 'compile -> /usr/share/automake-1.14/compile'

It wasn't there before (consequence of automake 1.14?).

OK. automake --add-missing --copy
did not overrode the symlink. It is fixed in
