This is my set up:

Intel(R) Fortran Compiler for Intel(R) EM64T-based applications, Version
9.1 Build 20060323 Package ID: l_fc_p_9.1.032

mpich version 1.2.7
MPICH configure: --with-device=ch_gm --enable-sharedlib
-prefix=/opt/mpich/myrinet/intel -opt=-O2 -c++=icpc
-lib=-Wl,-rpath,/opt/gm/lib64/ -L/opt/gm/lib64/ -lgm -lpthread

Yes, these were applied from the beginning.

OK, so the current version on the Intel site is 10. I downloaded that
compiler (ifort) and tried the installation without linking to the MKL
The same error occurs along with some new messages:

forrtl: severe (174): SIGSEGV, segmentation fault occurred
Image PC Routine Line Source
sander.MPI 00000000005466D5 Unknown Unknown
sander.MPI 0000000000514727 Unknown Unknown

Unknown 0000003D2051C3FB Unknown Unknown
sander.MPI 00000000004088AA Unknown Unknown

In this latter compilation, I did not use the -static flag. So updating
the compiler didn't work. I get the same error(s) for sander.MPI
regardless of the compiler or usage of the MKL libraries.

Interestingly; using the new compiler (version
10) and the old MKL libraries (version 8.1), I was able to compile and
test pmemd successfully. Pmemd passes all the tests. This is true
whether I use the MKL libraries or not.

The new compiler info is:
Intel(R) Fortran Compiler for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Version
10.0 Build 20070426 Package ID: l_fc_p_10.0.023
