Thanks Axel for the very exhaustive explanation.
I appreciated it.
If I would have the time I would like to try to compare
and test OpenMP and Mpich2 on my Linux PC, as well as the
million of options of the compilers....
Unfortunately, I have to use my (little) time to compile
Q-E and, expecially, to learn it!
(I consider myself mainly an experimental inorganic
chemist, electrochemist, with the passion of computer and
quatum mechanical calculations...)

Good answer. I'm trying to start from the most advanced
point that I can afford!
...I hope there is no back-trojan virus in the code :-)
