Ben - If you have Mellanox Infiniband hardware, you really should be using GASNet's vapi-conduit, which was written to natively support this hardware and gives *much* better performance than mpi-conduit on Infiniband. mpi-conduit is a "portable" option for networks where we lack native support and rarely gives the best performance the hardware can offer. It's definitely worth it to set up vapi-conduit instead - mpi-conduit is not recommended for high performance on Infiniband. Be sure to use the version in the stable snapshot, which I believe includes some important vapi-conduit fixes. However, note that vapi-conduit currently uses MPI for job bootstrapping, so you'll still need to get GASNet's configure to recognize *some* functional MPI installation (although it need not be a fast one - MPICH-Ethernet would be sufficient).
