FWIW, I know that the LANL developers on the Open MPI team tend to build
Open MPI statically on LANL Bproc systems for almost exactly this reason
(i.e., shared libraries are not always transparently moved to the
back-end nodes when executables run out there).

You can build Open MPI statically like this:

        ./configure --disable-shared --enable-static ...

(and add in all the other flags you want, such as CFLAGS=-m3, ...etc.).
