The problems you described:

/programs/my_mpi_program: symbol lookup error: /programs/openmpi/lib/ undefined symbol: ompi_registered_datareps

Should not have been caused by missing libib* libraries. The missing
symbol that that error message talks about is a symbol in libmpi
itself. It sounds more like you somehow had mis-matched versions of
Open MPI installed / being used, perchance...?
