the makefile isn't passing the -I when compiling that file:

> /usr/lib64/openmpi/1.3.2-gcc/bin/mpicc -o HPL_dlange.o -c  -DHPL_CALL_CBLAS -I/niaidAdmin/apps/hpl-2.0/include -I/niaidAdmin/apps/hpl-2.0/include -I/niaidAdmin/apps/hpl-2.0/include/Linux_x86_64 -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/openmpi -pipe -O3 -funroll-loops  ../HPL_dlange.c
> /usr/lib64/openmpi/1.3.2-gcc/bin/mpicc -o HPL_dlamch.o -c   ../HPL_dlamch.c
> ../HPL_dlamch.c:50:17: error: hpl.h: No such file or directory

everything between the -DHPL_CALL... and -funroll-loops is missing.
you need to look at the makefile in src/auxil/niaid...

thank goodness!  ;)  that would make no sense, since LD_LIBRARY_PATH is 
strictly a runtime/library thing, nothing to do with compile-time/headers.

I assume you know that this boilerplate is completely meaningless...
