[Ipopt] Build with WSMP Succeeds, Test Fails

I hadn't tried using WSMP on OS X until just now. I do get the same problem, 
it's probably due to Ipopt building shared libraries by default but WSMP is 
distributed as a static lib. Try configuring Ipopt with the 
flags --disable-shared --enable-static, that at least eliminated the dyld 
error for me. Make sure to set the environment variable WSMPLICPATH to the 
path to wsmp.lic. The Mac license file included in what I just downloaded is 
apparently expired. If you have that same problem, you'll probably want to 
contact the WSMP authors at wsmp at us.ibm.com.

On OS X using WSMP, I've configured an Ipopt build with:

../configure CXX=g++-mp-4.6 CC=gcc-mp-4.6 F77=gfortran-mp-4.6
--with-blas="-framework accelerate" --with-wsmp="$PATH_TO_WSMP/libwsmp64.a"

($PATH_TO_WSMP is a really long path) and see

checking whether user-supplied WSMP library "$PATH_TO_WSMP/libwsmp64.a
-lpthread" works... yes
configure: Main configuration of Ipopt successful

Great! I then build running make, and everything looks ok. Running make
test, however, I receive the following errors when the test executables are

dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _wsetmaxthrds_

Has anyone seen this problem before?
