Sure: Build everything statically, library (--disable-shared --enable-static)
and application (e.g. with gcc -static, with icc -static or -i-static(v9.1) /
Then move the binary of Your application and the ompi-tools to another (SMP)
machine, which does not have the usual installation of ompi-tools/orte

However, You have to be aware, that in case of error messages, the help-files
are not available, so the out probably is not very meaningful...

Also, depending on the interconnect, that is configured & installed, You may
need to have certain system/interconnect libraries (such as for IB).

Hope this helps.

With best regards,
