[HELP] MPICH recipe

hi there, I wrote the following recipe to build MPICH2

DESCRIPTION = "trying mpi"
LICENSE = "GPL"

SRC_URI = "http://www.mcs.anl.gov/research/projects/mpi/mpich2/
downloads/mpich2-1.0.6p1.tar.gz"

inherit autotools_stage

is this correct, i'm not sure about DEPENDS and RDEPENDS, can someone
help please?

I should add that I tried bitbake -b on the recipe above, but I've got
a building fail...beacause it lacks de DEPENDS I think.

Try the OE list and include some text of the actual error. If you
think it is missing a DEPENDS, try bitbake package to manually create
the package to see if that resolves the dependency issue. Add it to
the DEPENDS = then.

thank you very much Philip, I'll give it a try.

We are looking at mpich2, I am liking the idea of solving the atomics
problem in the other mpi ......
