Subject: AMBER: scyld beowulf --amber10--openmpi

I have compiled amber10 parallel in the scyld beowulf cluster using openmpi.
The system is a Intel Xeon, x84_64, and I followed the instructions at
I could successfully compile both sander and pmemd in parallel (or so it said).

However, when I try to test the suite:
cd $AMBERHOME/test
make test.parallel

I get the following error:

bash-2.05b# make test.parallel
export TESTsander=/home/rchaud/Amber10_openmpi/amber10/exe/sander.MPI;
make test.sander.BASIC

-lmpi_f77 -lmpi -lopen-rte -lopen-pal -ldl -Wl,--export-dynamic -lnsl
-lutil -lm -ldl

If I understand correctly, it cannot find the shared lib files? but I
have defined the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in both the .bashrc and
I edited the config_amber.h to add
-L/home/rchaud/openmpi-1.2.6/openmpi-1.2.6_ifort/lib -lmpi_f90
-lmpi_f77 -lmpi -lopen-rte -lopen-pal -ldl -Wl,--export-dynamic -lnsl
-lutil -lm -ldl to LOADLIB, and then did 'make parallel' in

which mpirun
However if I echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH gives me nothing (when logged
in as root), as a regular user, it echos the path

Any cues on what I might be doing wrong?
Also, please find the config_amber.h file attached.
