[Beowulf] Compiling HPL

  It looks like you're missing a compile-line include.  I've only worked
with hpl as part of hpcc, but in that situation they do all of their
includes by relative paths.  Make sure that when you are trying to
compile this code, you either see something like
-I/usr/local/hpl/include, or something like -I../../include that makes
sense for the place where the code is.  If you've shifted the directory
structure around at all while setting it up, this could very easily be
the problem.
  In such a situation, you can either add to the makefile an absolute
path include, or try to fix the structure to work with their assumed
relative paths.  Hope this helps!
