The command above should be avoided: when you do 'make install', you
install the binaries and the librairies in the directory where you
compiled. Best practices are to install in another directory. Comment
this 'ln -s' directive: you compile in /usr/local/openmpi-1.8.1, and you
install in /usr/local/openmpi. You can keep the others commands as they are.
Hope that will solve your problem,
