The executables for these use libraries in non-standard locations, so what I've done is add the directories containing them to my LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, and then calling mpirun with "-x LD_LIBRARY_PATH". This works well for me on OpenMPI 1.6.3 and earlier. However, I've been playing with OpenMPI 1.7.3 and this no longer seems to work. As soon as my code MPI_Comm_spawns, all the spawned processes die complaining that they can't find the correct libraries to start the executable.

Not intentionally, though it is possible that some bug crept into the code. If I understand correctly, the -x values are being seen by the original procs, but not by the comm_spawned ones?
