[CentOS] Installing openmpi & lam for use with R

I am trying to install the R package "Rmpi" which needs libmpi. I've
installed openmpi and lam in Centos 5.2:

[root at rab45-1 /]# rpm -qv openmpi
[root at rab45-1 /]# rpm -qv lam

But I get the following error message when trying to install Rmpi:

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/lam/lib/libmpi.so when
searching for -lmpi

I'm not sure what else to install/uninstall to fix this.
