[Beowulf] Help with HPL Makefile

Well, still no luck.  I have done several things but still get the exact same error.  I changed the name of my makefile to Make.Linux_x86_64 to make the arch parameter but that didn't change anything, I am still getting the same error.
I issued the command mpicc -showme and it tells me that I have correctly linked all the openmpi libraries, so that isn't the issue.
When I go to the directory tree /hpl/src/*/Linux_x86_64 where all the make.inc links should be, I can see the actual file Make.inc but double clicking on it in the GUI tells me 
"*/Make.inc does not seem to exist anymore."

I have been running this as root and changed to a user to run this but that didn't help.
Would there be any problems running this as root?

I have also gone into the setups directory and tried to use other makefiles just for kicks, and even with all the parameters completely incorrect, I get the same Makefile:47 error.
This leads me to believe that there is something else that I am overlooking, maybe the fact that this is a 64-bit operating system and I haven't accounted for that?
Doing some more research with this idea, I found a page that explained putting
-xarch=amd64 in the CCNOOPT
field.  Is there some type of flag that I have to use for an Intel Pentium D dual core 64-bit architecture?  I can't seem to think of anything else that could be wrong other than the incompatibility with a 64-bit operating system/architecture.
Thanks again for your help.
