Yes, simply run the configure script with something like:

./configure --prefix=$HOME/openmpi-`uname -m`

You will then be able to compile applications with:

~/openmpi-i686/bin/mpicc app.c -o app

And run them with:

~/openmpi-i686/bin/mpirun -np 3 app

Comparison is only relevant on your hardware with you application. Any other comparison are mostly for academic purposes and grand assignments ;)
