#1829: ExternalLibraries/MPI: increase verbosity when 'export VERBOSE=yes' is set

 Ticket #1667 touched on this issue a bit, but since I would like to see a
 solution just for the verbosity level and not a rewriting of how a
 external library should be reconfigured I think it is worth a ticket on
 its on.

 Currently if I set 'export VERBOSE=yes', the only message output I get
 from the MPI thorn is:

 Running configuration script for thorn MPI:
 Found MPI compiler wrapper at /usr/bin/mpic++!
 Successfully configured MPI.
 Finished running configuration script for thorn MPI.

 while for other external library detect bash scripts I have a verbose
 output as requested:

 Running configuration script for thorn HDF5:
 + set -e
 + . /home/bruno/tmp/ET_test/Cactus/lib/make/bash_utils.sh
 + '[' -n '' ']'
 ++ echo ''
 ++ tr '[a-z]' '[A-Z]'
 + '[' '' = BUILD ']'
 + HDF5_C_LIBS='hdf5_hl hdf5'
 + '[' no = yes ']'
 + '[' yes = yes ']'
 + '[' gfortran '!=' none ']'
 + HDF5_FORTRAN_LIBS='hdf5hl_fortran hdf5_fortran'
 + echo 'LIBRARY           $(HDF5_LIBS)'
 Additional requested language support:  Fortran
 HDF5 selected, but HDF5_DIR not set. Checking pkg-config ...
 HDF5 not found. Checking standard paths ...
 HDF5 not found.
 Using bundled HDF5...

 One way of doing something similar in perl is using the module
 Devel::ebug* and write an utility in the lines of the one presented here:


 Would someone be interested in pursuing this path for debugging perl
 scripts in Cactus and then increasing its verbosity?
