Removing the crypt libs would solve this particular problem, but not
the more general problem of bringing in all the necessary libraries
for things that link to libpfs2.a.  Had Ekkow been trying to use GM or
Infiniband, he'd have a similar problem.

The more general solution is to make use of our 'pvfs2-config' tool,
which we've had for ages and which I've also (finally) added to ROMIO
a few weeks back.  mpich2-1.0.5 will have this.
