OK, so where do we go from here?

It seems to me that OpenMPI is at fault for doing crafty things like
"stat()" in the __malloc_initialize_hook().  If that is the accepted
view, then having a way to suppress this behaviour, say with an
environment variable as suggested by Jeff Squyres, seems appropriate.
That would let me solve my problem by setting the variable in
debian/rules.  Or we could solve it Debian-wide by having
the variable set by fakeroot.
