Everything below this message is a consequence of the first message

There's two problems here:

1. Where are the help files -- why can't OMPI find them? That's
really weird; it suggests a broken Open MPI install. You have a few
pending e-mails to me about RPM builds that I need to go read (I'm
sorry; I'm way backed up :-( ); I wonder if this is somehow related...?

2. The specific error that is occurring is that the ORTE layer in OMPI
is unable to initialize its out-of-band messaging system (we call it
the "RML") which is *really* weird. The only reason that I can think
that that would occur is a broken OMPI install.

Is there any chance that there are some files missing from your OMPI
installs? For example, do you see these two files under $prefix/lib/
openmpi (or wherever $pkglibdir was set to):**
