This is what OMPI does.

However, if you only have static libraries for Torque, the issue
should be moot -- the relevant bits should be statically linked into
the OMPI tm plugins. But if your Torque libraries are shared, then
you do need to have them available on all nodes for OMPI to be able
to leverage native Torque/TM support.

Make sense?
