We configure with --disable-mpi-threads, and have not tested
--with-psm and --with-static. Do you provide --with-psm a DIR
argument? "configure --help" shows:

  ...
  --with-psm(=DIR) Build PSM (QLogic InfiniPath PSM) support, searching
                          for libraries in DIR
  --with-psm-libdir=DIR Search for PSM (QLogic InfiniPath PSM) libraries in
                          DIR
  ...
 
I will try to reproduce the problem.
