This suggests that perhaps 1.2.6 was configured with --enable-static
or --disable-dlopen. If either of these two options were used, OMPI
will suck all the plugins to become part of libmpi (and friends), and
therefore the plugins' dependencies will therefore become dependencies
of libmpi (and friends).
