 something like rosetta on 10.6…

 Yes, I have seen it is header-only. I borrowed some fixes from this port
 to my submission: https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/16536

 It ''may'' make sense to add known_fail if it does not – for sure – work
 with GCC though. (No strong opinion here.)
 If no known_fail, then we want it not to call for Clang on anything PPC.

 What would you recommend? Fixing mpi PG or adding a fix to the portfile?
