there are two stages of the search. a) whether the executables exists
and b) whether they can produce working binaries.

i would have expected a libfmpich.a, too.

this is impossible to tell, without knowing any details about your system.
what parallel software are you using (it looks like MPICH) and did you
install it yourself or was it bundled with the system? do mpif77 and
mpif90 point to a sufficient fortran
can you compile and run any of the (trivial) MPI example programs
that usually ship with MPI packages, and if yes, please describe the
commandline you use for that. based on that information, we may
be able to help you.
especially on linux machines, there are almost always a few kinks
to be worked out in the installation.
