Open MPI 1.6.5 does not have support for the XE-6. Use 1.7.2 instead.

There was a regression in PMI 3.x.x that still exists in 4.0.x that
causes a warning to be printed on every rank when using mpirun. We are
working with Cray to resolve the issue. For now use 2.1.4. See the
platform files in contrib/platform/lanl/cray_xe6. The platform files you
would want to use are debug-lustre or optimized-lusre.
BTW, 1.7.2 is installed on Cielo and Cielito. Just run:
module swap PrgEnv-pgi PrgEnv-gnu (PrgEnv-intel also works)
module unload cray-mpich2 xt-libsci
module load openmpi/1.7.2
