Error during compilation

Dear all,

I recently received the following error message when attempting to build the 11Aug17 version of LAMMPS on a Linux machine:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -libmad
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[1]: *** [../lmp_mpi] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/hpctmp2/e0023496/lammps-11Aug17/src/Obj_mpi'
make: *** [mpi] Error 2

I am quite puzzled as to why this error arises as I have previously built and run LAMMPS on this machine without any problems. Kindly advise.
