Hi Roy,

I followed your suggestion

I changed Make.common and put by hand

# MPI configuration
# (only explicitly defined when PETSc is absent, otherwise snooped  
from PETSc)
MPI_IMPL             = petsc_snooped
MPI_LIB              = $(MPICHLIB)

(where the environment variables are picked from my .cshrc)

The example seems link with mpi (for me mpich) but have now a  
different problem :
* Running Example  ./ex0-opt
dyld: Library not loaded: libguide.dylib
   Referenced from: /usr/local/libmesh/examples/ex0/./ex0-opt
   Reason: image not found
make[2]: *** [run] Trace/BPT trap
make[1]: *** [run] Error 1
make: *** [run_examples] Error 2

I guess "lguide" is a library for Shared memory management on  Mac ?  
is it right ?

I don't think so. libguide is distributed with the Intel MKL on my
system, but I don't know exactly what it's used for.
