If you configure ompi with -fdefault-integer-8, then OMPI will assume that Fortran integers are always 8 bytes, so be sure to also compile all of your MPI applications the same way. Indeed, you may want to configure OMPI with something like:
./configure FCFLAGS=-fdefault-integer-8 FFLAGS=-fdefault-integer-8 \
This will add -fdefault-integer-8 to the mpif77 and mpif90 command lines automatically so that you *can't* compile without that flag.
Be aware that 8-byte Fortran integers *should work* in Open MPI, but it is probably not well tested. You may well run into some issues; be sure to let us know if you run into bugs. Sending small test programs that show the problem are usually the best way to help us identify/fix the precise problem.

I don't think that this should be necessary -- as long as you configured OMPI with the 8-byte-integer setting, then MPI_INTEGER should represent an 8 byte integer.
