I also have occasionally the same problem with the coexistence
of serial/parallel/openmp builds. My not-so-smart solution
until now has been to clean and recompile, or to keep several
copies of the sources. If there is a solution that doesn't 
imply messing up too much the present build system, I am in
favor (CC: to Axel who may have better ideas than mine).

pw_forum is working, AFAIK: I just sent a message and it has 
appeared in the archive
