When I run with --debug-daemons, I get:

<Begin mpirun output>

[node5.x86-64:09920] [0,0,1] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file
runtime/orte_init_stage1.c at line 626
It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process
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_session_dir failed
  --> Returned value -1 instead of ORTE_SUCCESS

[node5.x86-64:09920] [0,0,1] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file
runtime/orte_system_init.c at line 42
[node5.x86-64:09920] [0,0,1] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Error in file
runtime/orte_init.c at line 52
Open RTE was unable to initialize properly. The error occured while
attempting to orte_init(). Returned value -1 instead of ORTE_SUCCESS.

<End mpirun output>

Where would you suggest I look next?

Also, if it makes any difference, /usr/local is on a read-only NFSROOT.
 Only /tmp and /var are writeable per-node.

Thank you very much for your help so far.
