[Debichem-devel] Bug#814129: elpa: FTBFS on x32: cannot find -lblacs-mpich et al.

Source: elpa
Version: 2015.05.001-1
Severity: important
Justification: fails to build from source

The x32 build of elpa failed:

  /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lblacs-mpich
  /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lblacsCinit-mpich
  /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lscalapack-mpich

Per https://packages.debian.org/sid/x32/libblacs-mpi-dev/filelist and
https://packages.debian.org/sid/x32/libscalapack-mpi-dev/filelist, the
appropriate suffix there is mpich2, at least as of the the latest
versions that built there at all (blacs-mpi 1.1-31, scalapack 1.8.0-9).
It's not clear whether any other architectures are affected, as most
builds ran afoul of dh-autoreconf bug #814063 (incompatibility with
libtool 2.4.6, just fixed).

Could you please take a look?
