mpicc -compile-info and -link-info don't work correctly -- they just show all flags.

In what way do they not work correctly? That's what they are supposed to do (perhaps the documentation needs to make that clearer - this isn't a subset of a verbose mode; it is used to get the flags for people who want to call the base compiler themselves).

I suspect Pavan expects them to act like the --cflags and --libs options to pkg-config.

Bill, you are saying that these were always just supposed to be aliases for -show?

Yes. It seems weird to have -compile-info show link flags. I'm not certain about -link-info, but it'll be good if it only shows the LDFLAGS and LIBS. The -show option will show all flags anyway.

Yes, its roughly the same as show. Have a look at the MPICH1 scripts - the -compile-info would only do the compile, not link step. Note that these are way, way older than pkg-config, and are included for backward compatibility with the users that originally requested them. Changing them would be a very bad idea; adding an alternative way to access the data needed to compile/link would be a nice enhancement.

Moving this to future, as it's not requested by anyone in particular.
