Actually, I think that was something else. Today, libopen-rte.la lists
libopen-pal.la as a dependency and libmpi.la lists libopen-rte.la. I had
removed the dependency of libmpi.la on libopen-pal.la because it was
causing libopen-pal.so to be listed twice by libtool, which was causing
problems.

It would be a trivial fix to change the Makefiles to make libmpi.la to
depend on libopen-pal.la as well as libopen-rte.la.
