Yes, on the same system, 1.6.3 openmpi works with MPICH installed in

with 1.6.3:
[root_at_tesla examples]# mpicc --showme hello_c.c
gcc hello_c.c -I/opt/scyld/openmpi/1.6.3/gnu/include -pthread
-L/opt/scyld/openmpi/1.6.3/gnu/lib -lmpi -libverbs -ldat -lrt -lnsl -lutil
-lm -ltorque -lm -lnuma -lrt -lnsl -lutil -lm
[root_at_tesla examples]#

With 1.6.4:
[root_at_tesla examples]# mpicc --showme hello_c.c
gcc hello_c.c -I/opt/scyld/openmpi/1.6.4/gnu/include -pthread -L/usr/lib64
-Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/lib64 -L/opt/scyld/openmpi/1.6.4/gnu/lib -lmpi
-libverbs -ldat -lrt -lnsl -lutil -lm -ltorque -lm -lnuma -lrt -lnsl -lutil
[root_at_tesla examples]#

So indeed, for 1.6.4, the linker is putting /usr/lib64 ahead of openmpi
library path, but I don't know why.
I used the same configure options when I did these builds. I didn't change
linker configuration from 1.6.3 to 1.6.4 either, the only difference I can
tell is the openmpi source code.

Thank you!
