Install MPI libraries

GCHP would need MPI library. Most of other models would need MPI, too.

Enabling in-node MPI parallelization is pretty trivial since no network configurations are required. For cross-node MPI run, using the pre-built MPI library provided by HPC cluster management tools would be much easier.

More details coming soon… The Dockerfile for WRF is a good reference for installing MPI libraries using the package manager. They use CentOS as the base OS.
