compiling metis 5.0rc1

What a difference in compilation process from pre2 to rc1. Good work!

I have compiled rc1 on both linux and windows (visual studio 2005) without any problem.

I just made a quick check with "gpmetis -contig" on 3000 graphs and all of them are really contiguous. Very nice. On the other hand, speed is much slower than kmetis4. But that fortunately doesn't matter for my case.

RE: How much slower? The

How much slower? The '-contig' option does add to the overall runtime. I was going to focus on performance optimizations once any initial bugs have been identified and fixed.
