#1648: MPI thorn should auto configure

 The attached patch upgrades the MPI configuration thorn in a number of
 ways. First, and most importantly, it automatically configures mpi based
 on information obtained from mpicc when MPI_DIR isn't specified.

 Configuration is only disabled by setting MPI_DIR = NONE.

 In addition to MPI_INSTALL_DIR, it will look at CACTUS_EXT_INSTALL_DIR.
 Frank says that at one point a general external directory for applications
 was discussed.

 My feeling is that having the install land in configs is usually not what
 people want. This version emits an error message if you set MPI_DIR to
 BUILD, but don't set one of the above install dirs. If you really want MPI
 under configs, you can set MPI_INSTALL_DIR=CONFIGS.

 I anticipate pushback on my MPI_DIR=NONE, and MPI_INSTALL_DIR=CONFIGS
 suggestions, but I thought I'd suggest them regardless.
