Using package_rank to select between NIC of equal distance from the process.

If PMIX_PACKAGE_RANK is available, uses this value to select between multiple
NIC of equal distance between the current process. If this value is not
available, try to calculate it by getting the locality string from each local
process and assign a package_rank. If everything fails, fall back to using
process_id.rank to select the NIC. This last case is not ideal, but has a small
chance of occuring, and causes an output to be displayed to notify that this is
occuring.

[package_rank failed]
Open MPI's OFI driver detected multiple equidistant NICs from the current process,
but had insufficient information to ensure MPI processes fairly pick a NIC for use.
This may negatively impact performance. A more modern PMIx server is necessary to
resolve this issue.
