Since you confirm that it does indeed work, I'm happy to edit the readme - thanks!

The README in trunk and v1.7 both read:

- ROMIO is not supported on OpenBSD.  You will need to specify the

However, I have no current problems building it:

$ ./INST/bin/ompi_info --parsable | grep -e :arch: -e romio

This item in the README entered v1.5 in r25845 and was syned to trunk in r26034.
The 02/23/2012 date for r25845 comes weeks AFTER I had resolved problems I was having when testing v1.5 on OpenBSD (  So, I am not sure why it was decided that ROMIO was broken on OpenBSD in 1.5.
