Hi Patrick,

I am also attempting to compile and run the MITgcm on an Altrix at GFDL. 
The following commands seem to do the trick:

%/bin/sh ../../../tools/genmake2 -bash=/bin/sh -mods=../code -mpi
%make depend

BUT right at the end - when mitgcmuv is being created it spits out the 
following error message:

 > ld: cannot find -lPEPDF90
 > make: *** [mitgcmuv] Error 1

Any ideas who to mend this little problem??
