Underlying MPI implementation is rather independent from mpiexec (which 
has more to do with pbs/torque and the mpi starting mechanism) than with 
mpi libs.

You mentioned about startup mechanism based on mpd daemons. If this is the 
method intel mpi starts its children processes, then there's no problem 
for you, as mpiexec can be compiled with mpd support.

This is the compile-time option that makes mpiexec work with mpd:
