We have built namd on mpich-mx on Linux and I would assume it is the
same on MacOSX.

Basically, we pointed charm at mpich-mx which pointed it to the
correct mx lib.
You will need to edit

CMK_REAL_COMPILER=`/opt/mpich-mx/bin/mpiCC -show 2>/dev/null | cut -
d' ' -f1 `
g++) CMK_AMD64="-m64 -fPIC" ;;

OPTS_CPP="$OPTS_CPP -I/opt/mpich-mx/include"

CMK_CPP_CHARM="/lib/cpp -P"
CMK_CPP_C="mpicc -E"
CMK_CC="mpicc $CMK_AMD64 "

CMK_SYSLIBS="-L/opt/mpich-mx/lib -lmpich -L/opt/mx/lib -lmyriexpress"

I am assuming that the AMD64 references will be PPC64.
