This is ok; we changed the name of the mpool component somewhere along
the way to be "rdma" (vs. "openib").

I see that you're compiling against the InfiniPath OFED -- is there a
reason you're not building the ipath Open MPI plugins? They should
give better performance than the openib stuff. Try

   --with-psm=/usr/local/Cluster-Apps/infinipath/2.1/

(I don't know if you need to supply more to that path or not)
