Comment (by Roland Haas):

 Good question. I had a look just now. The log file shows that the mpirun
 used was `/home/eschnett/src/spack-view/bin/mpirun` and we set MPI_DIR to
 be /home/eschnett/src/spack-view however MPI_LIB_DIRS ends up being
 configured (by MPI's detect.pl script) as
 . We do not (other than on Crays) use mpicc but instead use the normal
 compiler and explicitly link against the MPI library. The `mpirun` in in
 `/home/eschnett/src/spack-view/bin/mpirun` is identical to the one in
 so it should be compatible.

 So, it does not seem to be quite so simple.

 If I had to bet money I would bet on the system infiniband library having
 changed and one has to recompile OpenMPI to account for this.
