Compiling MPICH/FFTW/PETSc with 2019 version

Dear All,

I wanted to upgrade to the newest parallel studio XE cluster edition and have installed 2019 update 2.

Installation worked, but now I have a lot of problems compiling the libraries I need:

When compiling MPICH, I get

checking size of bool... 0
configure: error: unable to determine matching C type for C++ bool

For FFTW, I also had similar with some definitions (https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-c-compiler/topic/804830) and also with PETSc (using Intel MPI because of the issues with MPICH) the Linker fails.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04. Are there any changes in the behavior of the 2019 compiler versions with respect to gcc compatibility or the use of Linux headers?

I now tried with 2018 update 4 and have the same problems on Ubuntu 18.04. However, it works on 16.04. Do I need to install some specific packages?

It seems to work with GCC 7.3 (i.e. GCC 8.2 is causing the problems)
