Okay, my mistake. In fact for inheritance there's no need to add
PortableServer::ServantBase, as it's already inherited from by the
POA_XXX generated skeleton.

So I think what needs to be done for porting Salomé to omniORB 4.1 is:
 * when a class declaration inherits from POA_XXX and
   RefCountServantBase, remove RefCountServantBase.
 * calls to RefCountServantBase::{_add_ref(),_remove_ref()} have to be
   replaced with ServantBase::{_add_ref(),_remove_ref()}.

I am willing to help you with this, and tried to compile Salomé on my
system but got blocked before the step you reached. When compiling
NETGENPlugin, I get:

  /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lSMESHimpl

I have regenerated and installed OpenCASCADE 6.2.0-7 and recompiled
hdf5 1.6.5-5.2 with your patch for OpenMPI on top of it.

Do you know what's wrong in my local installation?
