OMPI 1.2.6 is fairly ancient; you might want to upgrade. 

The problem is your systems clock. Set it properly and configure should be ok.

*** GNU libltdl setup
configure: OMPI configuring in opal/libltdl
configure: running /bin/sh './configure'  '--prefix=/stg/s1p1/users/yuanjm/haowp/opt/openmpi' 'FC=ifort' 'F90=ifort' --enable-ltdl-convenience --disable-ltdl-install --enable-shared --disable-static --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock
configure: /bin/sh './configure' *failed* for opal/libltdl
configure: error: Failed to build GNU libltdl.  This usually means that something
is incorrectly setup with your environment.  There may be useful information in
opal/libltdl/config.log.  You can also disable GNU libltdl (which will disable
dynamic shared object loading) by configuring with --disable-dlopen.
$vi /opml/libltdl/config.log

Thank you for your attention.Hope your reply.
