I am not so sure, that the compilation and installation went through
correctly, You didn't pass any options regarding shared/static compilation,
however, in the config.log output, the opal/libtltdl the flags
--disable-shared and --enable-static get passed...

So You probably end up having only static libraries in the
~/bin/OpenMPI/lib-directory, right?

Could You please untar the openmpi-1.1.2 again and do a VPATH-build into a
clean (empty) prefix-directory, e.g.:

tar xjf openmpi-1.1.2.tar.bz2
cd openmpi-1.1.2
../configure --prefix=`pwd`/usr

and directly mail me the output of
ls -al this usr-directory?
