E.g., if OMPI is installed into /opt/openmpi-1.6.2, try installing into /opt/openmpi-1.6.5, or even $HOME/installs/openmpi-1.6.5, or something like that.

My install was in my user directory (i.e $HOME). I managed to locate the source directory and successfully run make uninstall.

Will let you know how things went after installation.
