Just remove the -L and -l arguments -- OMPI's "mpif90" (and other
wrapper compilers) will do all that magic for you.

Many -L/-l arguments in MPI application Makefiles are throwbacks to
older versions of MPICH wrapper compilers that didn't always work
properly. Those days are long gone; most (all?) MPI wrapper
compilers do not need you to specify -L/-l these days.
