Yes, I remember seeing that error too; although it may have only been with
version 2.5 that I saw that.
So apparently some other libraries also used to be native, and are no
longer, and I had already created the other links.
So in addition to lipmpi*, you'll also want to do
% cd /usr/lib/; sudo ln -s /opt/local/lib/libopen-pal*
Let me know if that helps.
