I can see that Patrick posted my same error on:

Can I please find out the status? I have a simple test case which
demonstrates the --prefix is not working on mpirun. I build into
and it works. However, if I copy the files, remove the
and try to point to my new directory of /tmp/openmpi-1.1.3, it fails.

prompt <154> /usr/local/openmpi-1.1.3/bin/mpirun -n 1 --host em64t hostname
prompt <155> cp -r /usr/local/openmpi-1.1.3 /tmp
prompt <156> /tmp/openmpi-1.1.3/bin/mpirun -n 1 --host em64t hostname

# As ROOT:
[root_at_em64t openmpi-1.1.3]# mv /usr/local/openmpi-1.1.3/lib

prompt <157> /tmp/openmpi-1.1.3/bin/mpirun -n 1 --host em64t --prefix
/tmp/openmpi-1.1.3 hostname

It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort. There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_init; some of which are due to configuration or
environment problems. This failure appears to be an internal failure;
here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an
Open MPI developer):

  orte_sds_base_select failed
  --> Returned value -13 instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

[em64t:26023] [NO-NAME] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Not found in file
runtime/orte_system_init.c at line 42
[em64t:26023] [NO-NAME] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Not found in file
runtime/orte_init.c at line 49
Open RTE was unable to initialize properly. The error occured while
attempting to orte_init(). Returned value -13 instead of ORTE_SUCCESS.

The man page implies that --prefix would work. I know my example is
silly. The real case
involves going over a cluster, but the above is the simpliest case I
could create.
 From the man page:

   --prefix <dir>
                 Prefix directory that will be used to set the
PATH and
                 LD_LIBRARY_PATH on the remote node before invoking
Open MPI
                 or the target process. See the "Remote Execution"

BTW - I am trying to migrate from LAM to OpenMPI. The switch was
very painless. Thanks for the good work.
