Static linking for the verbs library is not for the faint of heart.
See the OMPI FAQ in the Open Fabrics section if you really want to
statically link; there's a question about exactly this issue.

Note that we're still working on the static linking with the intel
compiler issue; it's more complex than we initially thought.

Also note that this issue you're having is likely to happen with for
static and shared linking -- it's probably your ssh setup, not
anything to do with static or shared linking. Can you ssh to the
remote machine without entering a password? That's what you need to
have working.
