Have you fixed the problem?

On BG/Q, Version  4.6.5.

Here, the /libmass_simd.a is under /opt/ibmcmp/xlmass/bg/7.3/bglib64
(it may different from yours).

During cmake I added

-DCMAKE_C_FLAGS="-O3 -L/opt/ibmcmp/xlmass/bg/7.3/bglib64 -lmass_simd"

It works on my side, you may do a check by yourself. Please also pay
attention to the compiler you use. XL is different.

Good luck,
