[Dune] error running code with MPI

Hi Christian,

I just made a distclean and recompiled with this flag to make sure it is 
everywhere "seen". The bug is however still there. Do I have to 
recompile all other packages (ALUGrid, metis, ...) with this kind of 
flag as well?

I wish you and the Dune-Team a wonderful weekend.
