build with no mpi


I'm trying to port to a DEC Alpha machine with OSF1. It has 4 processors and it is standalone.
mpi is not installed on the machine, so I get a build error (it can't find mpif.h).
Is there a way to compile with no mpi?

With CCSM, you must use mpi. Although we have not tested it, you should be able to build mpich for a workstation and run CCSM on a single multiprocessor node or even on a single processor. One thing to note is that our limited testing on Alpha has not succeeded in getting our tests to run correctly.
