Well, the investigation is all on me, barring a definitive answer from someone more knowledgable.

But after a lot of scouring, I haven’t found anything in the OpenMPI documentation - or on the web in-general - that suggests binaries are tied to a build machine’s specific hardware.

So what I’m asking is, should we just go ahead and update openmpi-* to publish binaries?
