Yeah, maybe we'll try to add a comment about a wrapper executable 
somewhere, but it's kind of complicated since it's not needed 
everywhere, and on some platforms it's not called mpirun. The first 
thing you should do is make sure you can compile a very small test 
executable with MPI (this usually comes with the MPI package), just to 
make sure MPI works.
