I'd be surprised if my prescribed solution doesn't work for you.  You should
try it.

Actually, I consciously read your posting twice to make sure that you
didn't show some indication that the compiler should be able to find
the include file.  My recommendation is to do what I suggested and
take a look at the 'gcc' documentation.  If you have questions and/or
problems after that, then you can follow-up to this list or, more
appropriately, some gcc users list.  What you've demonstrated so
far would have the same problems on any POSIX platform, given the
install path you have for MPI.

This has no bearing on whether the compiler will find the include file.

This also has no bearing on whether the compiler will find the include file.

That, of course, is relevant but even if you didn't have permissions, that
still wouldn't explain your problem.
