    You will need an implementation of MPI installed to compile the parallel version of BladeEnc. If you don't have one already, <SHAMELESS_PLUG>might I be so bold as to suggest one: LAM/MPI.</SHAMELESS_PLUG>

    However, if you're working on some kind of "big iron", you should probably obtain the vendor's implementation of MPI for best performance. This list of MPI implementations may be helpful. If you've got a cluster of unix workstations (possibly of different types/flavors), LAM/MPI will probably work just fine.

    NOTE: This version of BladeEnc is NOT meant to replace the real distribution! I am distributing it here mainly as a "proof of concept", and to open the discussion with BladeEnc developers as to the Right Way to do things in parallel. It is likely that the ultimate results of this work will eventually be sucked into the main BladeEnc distribution.
