The implementation of openMP (openMP library) is compiler specific. Thus
specifying libgmop in the LSB will not help other compilers (Intel,
Portlan Group etc.) as they have their own implementation of openMP.

IMHO we want to have the various openMP RTE libraries be LSB compliant
such that they can be shipped.
