The "-mpi" flag is only for "native" mpi, and assumes that all include
files are in places like /usr/include where they will automatically be found.
Locations under /opt are not automatically searched.

It sounds like you are using MPICH (?) since you set $MPICH_HOME. If so,
you need to use "-mpich" (not "-mpi") as the flag to configure.
