I use pmemd 10 with openmpi on our inifiniband cluster, because that is the
MPI version that came pre-configured from the vendor. You have to tweak the
config.h file a bit. But I can post what I did, or we might get a patch
out to update the configure script itself.

Basically, there is no incompatibility, just (right now) a bit of a hassle.
I've runs hundreds of nsec of simulations with openmpi without seeing any
