[Ipopt] Compiling ipopt with ma77

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your reply. I am still having problems but the problem changed a
little. I am able to successfully build ipopt trunk version with ma77 but
cannot solve the optimization problem with it, here is a breakdown:

- I checked out the trunk version with svn, and placed a    coinhsl
 directory into $[ipopt_dir]/ThirdParty/HSL/   whose contents are the
contents of      coinhsl-2012.12.21.tar.gz.

- run ./get.Metis and ./get.Mumps  from their directories.

- Create build directory in $[ipopt_dir].

- Run ../configure,  make,  make test,  make install   from within

Using the newly created libraries and include files in the build directory,
I am able to solve a test problem succesfully with ma27, ma57, and mumps.
However, when I try solving the problem with ma77, I get the output below,
and Ipopt terminates. As can be understood from above, I did not use any
flags while configuring Ipopt. Let me know if you can guess what the
problem might be with ma77.
