Absolutely!!! Every time you switch from one MPI version to another
you have to recompile your tests and/or benchmarks.

What you did change the LD_LIBRARY_PATH locally. When in fact you need
to have it set correctly on the remote shells. As you want to switch
from one MPI library to another, your task will be a little bit more
difficult. Open MPI can easily deal with this either by using the --
prefix argument, or by adding "--enable-orterun-prefix-by-default --
enable-mpirun-prefix-by-default" on the configure.
