Building MPICH.

MPICH is easy to configure and build. A complex ``configure'' script recognizes almost all common systems. The only drawback to this is that many parts of MPICH wind up with hard-coded path names (relative to the MPICH installation directory) and it can be painful to extract pieces of the MPICH distribution to use elsewhere.
