How to compile OF with another Mpi
I would like to compile OF with an OpenMPI version different from the one included in the Third Party, as I use other home-made parallel codes that work with a system installation of OpenMPI libraries. The standard OF installation overwrites the $MPI_HOME and $MPI_ARCH_PATH variables, so the system installation is switched off.
Is there any simple workaround to tell OF to use my system installation? Actually I'm obliged to create a separate openfoam user on my system, but I would prefer to use OF and my other codes from a single user.
I use OpenFOAM-1.6.x under a SLAMD64 Linux distro.

I think $MPI_HOME and $MPI_ARCH_PATH variables are set in '$WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/settings.sh' about two-thirds of the way down:
case "$WM_MPLIB" in
# Tell OpenMPI where to find its install directory
You could probably change these to where your system OpenMPI is installed, just a suggestion not sure if it will work.
