Here's what we've found. It wasn't the platform file as such. I've
since built with ./configure and some standard, obvious command line
switches. What's then required is to edit the platform configuration
file, <prefix>/etc/openmpi-mca-params.conf and add:

        coll_sync_priority = 100
        coll_sync_barrier_before = 1000
