[Users] Issues to install: failed to configure openmpi

Hello Shanshan,

we have had issues with OpenMPI and MacPorts in the past (see eg
https://bitbucket.org/einsteintoolkit/tickets/issues/2290/failure-to-compile-et_mayer-using-gcc-mp-9) though usually with OpenMPI preventing us from building and not so much it itself not building.

Not usually building OpenMPI.

It worked for me a couple of weeks ago (on a freshly installed Catalina
system), though this may have changed since.

Can you include (or check) the file


mentioned in the error message?
