I'm currently polishing up the new OpenMPI packaging in rawhide, and
(barring surprises) I should have new openmpi and openmpi-devel
packages in updates by the end of the week.  These will obsolete the
openmpi-libs and openmpi-vt packages, and otfdump will be in
openmpi-devel: %{_libdir}/%{name}/bin/ where it won't interfere with libotf.
