I can't do that because that means that that symbol will need to be
linked into the rsh pls component -- that symbol only exists in the
orted, so this would be problematic.

Is there a liborte function that I can call that indicates whether
the current process is an orted or not? Or an environment variable
that only exists for orted's?
