You shouldn't have to. The runtime loader should look inside of /usr/lib64 by
itself. Unless of course, you've built either your application or OpenMPI using
a 32-bit Intel complier instead (say fc instead of fce). In that case the
runtime loader would look inside of /usr/lib to find libnuma, rather then

Are you sure you are using the 64-bit version of the Intel compilier? If you
intend to use the 32-bit version of the compilier, and OpenMPI is 32-bits you
may just need to install the numactl.i386 and numactl.x86_64 RPMS.
