Yeah, that's because libtool.m4 macros partly match by name, unless the
compiler claims to be GCC.  A bit dumb, sure, but it's not easy to avoid
because portable testing of these flags is not trivial.  We might have
to think about a more general way to extract the compiler name from an
MPI driver (-show and -showme come to mind).

For the moment you should be able to work around it using
  configure lt_cv_prog_compiler_pic_F77=-fPIC \
            lt_cv_prog_compiler_pic_FC=-fPIC \

but I'm not sure if you also need fixes for missing -static and -Wl,
flags (lt_prog_compiler_wl_F77 and lt_prog_compiler_static_F77 ...).
This requires Libtool >= 2.4.

Alternatively, the untested patch below should help as well.  Can you
try it out?

Thanks for the report,

    Fix PIC flags with mpif77 using ifort on GNU/Linux.
    * libltdl/m4/libtool.m4 (_LT_COMPILER_PIC) [linux]:
    Match Intel compiler also using $CC -V output, to avoid false
    negatives with compiler drivers like mpif77.
