mpich 'make testing'

I've compiled mpich-1.2.1 with the Portland Group compiler and I'm getting the error below.  I had installed NPB and had been testing it (works fine with 1 process) and had been getting the same problem when I ran any test with multiple processes, so I went back and started testing my mpich installation and found this problem.  I've seen a few people reporting problems with casting integers when compiling this with GNU cc, but no specific fixes to the problem. 

Help? :)
