Yeah, it's the lib confusion that's the problem - this is the problem:

[saturna.cluster:07360] [[14551,0],0] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Buffer type (described

Have you tried configuring with --enable-mpirun-prefix-by-default? This
would help avoid the confusion. You also should check your path to ensure
that it is correct as well (make sure that mpirun is the one you expect, and
that you are getting the corresponding remote orted).
