[Mpi-forum] MPI-3 svn branch does not build

This is a known problem - the overuse of change markers is the problem.  The general make target builds the most marked up version of the standard, which at this point is unbuildable.  As that includes only the document for review and editing, this hasn't been fixed or changed.  

I will once again put in my plea for sensible edits and markup in the chapters, not the mark-every-single-change-to-whitespace-or-commas approach that we have been taking.  Chapter committees should be formed, they should update a chapter, then provide a diff.  Anyone who reflows text, thus making the diff harder, should be expelled.
