mpiexec: SSH dependency

Asked by Nico Schlömer

I just bumped into a nasty error when submitting a package to the launchpad build farm that contains a number of MPI test cases (involving mpiexec). All of the tests failed with funny orte error messages.
I was eventually abel to track it down to which says:

> The problem was that orted couldn't find ssh nor rsh on that machine.

Adding "ssh" to the list of build dependencies indeed fixed the error.

My question now is: Should ssh be in the list of dependencies of openmpi-bin itself? Has anyone else had similar issues before?
