Error while building CESM on zeus (linux)


I am building CESM on a linux machine and I get an error while building pio:

  type(file_desc_t), pointer :: file


/scratch2/portfolios/BMC/epaw/CESMmodels/utils/pio/pio_msg_callbacks.F90(27): error #6404: This name does not have a type, and must have an explicit type.   [FILE]

  file=> lookupfile(fh)

Am I missing a library?

Thank you,




file_desc_t is defined in pio_types.F90 look for the compile log for that file and see if there is an error there.
