This is not a bug just wonder if this can be improved. I have been
running openmpi linked program with command

<openmpi-install-dir>/bin/mpirun --prefix <openmpi-install-dir> \
                                 --host A -np N a.out

My understanding is that --prefix allows extra search path in addition to
PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH, correct me if I am wrong. Assuming that
openmpi's install directory structure is fixed, would it possible for
mpirun to search <openmpi-install-dir> automatically for libmpi.so &
friends so to avoid the redundant --prefix <openmpi-install-dir> to
mpirun ?

Thanks,
A.Chan
