Hallo Klaas!

Ich hoffe, Dir geht's gut!!!

Sorry you are having trouble compiling Ipopt with Pardiso.   There could 
be several reasons, maybe some library (such as "-lpthread") is missing, 
or the version of Pardiso is incompatible.

A good way to figure out what is going on is to look at the config.log 
file.  Here are instructions on how to find out where precisely to look 
for.  This will help you find the part of the config.log file that has 
the particular error message from the link attempt with your Pardiso 


Hope this helps.

Frohe Feiertage,
