Looking at the log, it looks like Tim fixed a few things to do with
probe/iprobe, and Galen added the stuff to configure to Topspin's mvapi
headers / libraries. That's probably most of what would interest you
(you can see the full log via the "svn log" command).

Note that you really only have to do one of those -- the file method is
a good/easy way to set it an forget about it. The environment variable
way is also fine (and 100% equivalent to the file method), but needs to
be set in every shell where you invoke mpirun.
