Possibly...? I can't name any particular issue offhand that is a
known culprit for this, but it's possible someone else can. There are
many changes and fixes in the v1.3 series as compared to the v1.2

In mpi.h, we have a few macros that should help you:

  * Just in case you need it. :-)
#define OPEN_MPI 1

/* Major, minor, and release version of Open MPI */

You should be able to construct a fairly simple AC_TRY_RUN test that
checks #if defined(), etc.
