you have to install an MPI package (e.g. LAM/MPI, OpenMPI, MPICH)
first and then configure/compile quantum espresso with parallel support
as explained in the provided installation instructions.

please make sure that your MPI package is compatible with or compiled
for the fortran compiler you want to use to compiled quantum espresso with.
precompiled packages may be compiled for a different compiler and thus
need special flags or environment variables set to use the compiler of
your choice.
