First, you probably need some kind of 'mpirun' command (and perhaps a
'lamboot' first), but this depends on your MPI implementation.

When you use 'mpirun' you might have to specify -np 2 (or -n 2) both for
mpirun and mdrun_mpi, since mpirun might scan the entire command line
and capture the first '-np' option.
