Actually, I never wrote the lazy open code, so we load the components
during MPI_INIT. They aren't initialized until first use, but they
are loaded. Just to verify, I did a build of 1.2.3 and of 1.2.4 and
there's no difference in the list of undefined symbols or library
references between the pt2pt osc components in the two builds.

Still at a loss for why the change between releases -- I would not
have expected it to work with 1.2.3.
