Thanks a lot Aurelien!
I am able to compile and run a test hello_mpi.c code successfully now.

You have to update the ldcache each time you add some .so files to the
directories it refers to. If you don't, any .so file you added since
system bootup will not be found (even if they are in the filesystem).
This is made by running ldconfig as root. If this does not solve your
problem, please check that /usr/local/lib appears in the output of
If it does not, you have to add this directory to /etc/ld.so.conf, or
to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH shell variable, or to use the --enable-mpirun-
prefix-by-default option in the Open MPI configure.
Hope that helps,
