When I was switching between lam and ompi, something similar happened to me
and I also had to resort to update-alternatives. IIRC I used --auto but I
didn't write that down.

Now, having gotten here, would you agree that is not a bug in the Open MPI
packages but rather than some fragility in update-alternatives?  Is it ok if
we close this?

Cheers, Dirk
