Hi Matt,

I recently installed trilinos on Ubuntu 10.04 and saw a similar error. I'm a
noob, so there's probably a better fix, but I ended up completely removing
mpich and used openmpi instead, as Nuno recommended. I encountered these
issues when installing on my workstation, on which I had previously
installed mpich. On my laptop, I've never installed mpich and the trilinos
install went flawlessly, so my guess is it's an mpich issue.

As for the -fPIC problem, I had a similar issue but when linking to Dakota.
Kurtis' suggestion is probably the correct fix. I had never used CMake
before and wasn't sure how to add the flag so I just exported the following
         export CFLAGS="-fPIC"
         export CXXFLAGS="-fPIC"
         export FCFLAGS="-fPIC"
         export F77FLAGS="-fPIC"
That seemed to work.

Good luck,
