[Rd] Rmpi on Fedora 8

A yum update to lam 7.1.4 (from 7.1.2) broke Rmpi for me this last week and quite a few changes were needed to repair this, so I'm reporting here in case it helps others. This was an x86_64 system - adjust 'lib64' suitably for 32-bit systems.

There seems to me to be major organizational changes for a 'patchlevel' update to a setup that previously worked out of the box. They almost certainly apply to Fedora 9 too.

   cat > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/lam.ld.conf

   (AFAIR, the previous version was in /usr/lib64/lam, and installed a    ld.so.conf.d file. Make sure /usr/lib64/lam is not in the ldconfig    path.)

    /usr/lib64/lam/bin/lamboot -prefix /usr/lib64/lam
