ftn in the usual way.
Details of options introduced by the compiler wrappers can be
examined via, e.g.,

PETSC is configured with Metis, Parmetis, and Scotch orderings, and to support HYPRE, MUMPS, SuperLU, and SuperLU-DIST. PETSc is compiled without OpenMP.
petsc module defines the environment variable
PETSC_DIR as the
root of the installation if this is required.

Compile your own version
It is possible to follow the steps used to build the current version on Archer2. These steps are codified at the Archer2 github repository and include a number of dependencies to be built in the correct order:
$ git clone https://github.com/ARCHER2-HPC/pe-scripts.git $ cd pe-scripts $ git checkout modules-2021-10 $ ./sh/tpsl/metis.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ ./sh/tpsl/parmetis.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ ./sh/tpsl/hypre.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ ./sh/tpsl/scotch.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ ./sh/tpsl/mumps.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ ./sh/tpsl/superlu.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ ./sh/tpsl/superlu-dist.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location $ module load cray-hdf5 $ ./sh/petsc.sh --prefix=/path/to/install/location
--prefixoption indicating the install directory should be the same in all cases. See the Archer2 github repository for further details (and options).
