It looks like there are some problems with GNU libtool's support for
the Intel compiler on OS X. I can't tell if it's a problem with the
Intel compiler or libtool. A quick fix is to build Open MPI with
static libraries rather than shared libraries. You can do this by

   --disable-shared --enable-static

to the configure line for Open MPI (if you're building in the same
directory where you've already run configure, you want to run make
clean before building again).

I unfortunately don't have access to a Intel Mac machines with the
Intel compilers installed, so I can't verify this issue. I believe
one of the other developers does have such a configuration, so I'll
ask him when he's available (might be a week or two -- I believe he's
on vacation). This issue seems to be unique to your exact
configuration -- it doesn't happen with GCC on the Intel Mac nor on
Linux with the Intel compilers.
