Avoiding the use of mpif90 accomplishes nothing for changing between
incompatible Fortran compilers. Run-time libraries are incompatible
among ifort, gfortran, and Oracle Fortran, so you can't link a mixture
of objects compiled by incompatible Fortran compilers except in limited
circumstances. This includes the MPI Fortran library.
I don't see how it is too great an inconvenience for your Makefile to
set PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the mpif90 corresponding to the
chosen Fortran compiler. You may need to build your own mpif90 for
gfortran as well as the other compilers, so as to configure it to keep
it off the default PATHs (e.g. --prefix=/opt/ompi1.4gf/), if you can't
move the Ubuntu ompi.
Surely most of this is implied in the OpenMPI instructions.
