I'm having trouble with the following command. Could anyone offer a 
solution as I am unable to find the missing libraries? Thanks.

R CMD INSTALL Rmpi_0.5-7.tar.gz

The command returns

checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed
I am here /usr/local
Try to find mpi.h ...
Found in /usr/local/include
Try to find libmpi.so or libmpich.a
checking for main in -lmpi... no
libmpi not found. exiting...

The machine I'm on is, from uname
