I'm trying to compile beompi via:
rpm --rebuild beompi-1.0.14-1.src.rpm

But after awhile, it complains:
ld -Bstatic -i -lbproc --whole-archive  -lmpirun -L/usr/mpi-beowulf/lib
-lmpich -lslog -defsym getarg_=1 -defsym f__xargc=1 -o /usr/lib/libmpi.a
ld: cannot find -lbproc
make: *** [install] Error 1

[root at ohm-master1 lib]# pwd
[root at ohm-master1 lib]# ls -l libbproc*
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        37044 Apr 16 09:43 libbproc.a
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           13 Apr 16 08:51 ->
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           17 Apr 16 08:51 ->
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        41319 Apr 16 09:43

[root at ohm-master1 lib]# ldconfig -p | grep libbproc (libc6) => /usr/lib/ (libc6) => /usr/lib/

I even tried setting $LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
[root at ohm-master1 lib]# echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH 

What's up?

I want to compile it myself so that it is more optimized for an Athlon
rather than an i386.
