Dave --

 From your config.log, it looks like you had either the environment
variable LDFLAGS or LIBS set to:

        -L~/param/lib -L/opt/local/lib

This is what is causing the libtool error -- the "~" construct is a
shell construct that is only interpreted properly when it begins a
token on the command line (i.e., since it's the 3rd character in the
token above, it is not replaced with your home directory).

Unless you need these -L's for Open MPI to build properly, you might
want to simply unset LDFLAGS / LIBS before running Open MPI's
configure. If you do need them, replace "~" with the full path to
your home directory (or use $HOME, which will be substituted properly
in the middle of a shell command line token).
