I found an archive email with the same basic error I am running into for mpi 1.2.6, unfortunately other then the question and request for the output, there was not an email response on how it was solved.
the error
../../../opal/.libs/libopen-pal.so: undefined reference to `lt_libltdlc_LTX_preloaded_symbols'
Here is the email link for the 1.2.4 problem..
The email is a response by Jeff Squyres to the originator Jorge Parra.  Can either of you help?
here is my make output failure.. basically identical to the one reported for mpi 1.2.4
