WHAT: Stop building the MPI C++ bindings by default for v1.9
WHY: The MPI-3.0 spec removed the MPI C++ bindings
WHERE: flip the switch in configure (on the trunk)
WHEN: January, 2013
The MPI-3.0 spec removed the MPI C++ bindings, but allow implementations to continue providing them if they want to. We might as well start the long, slow process of getting rid of the MPI C++ bindings.
We discussed last week in the developer's meeting about flipping the default in configure such that it won't build the MPI C++ bindings by default starting with Open MPI v1.9. This can be done on the trunk in January, 2013.
We can discuss the removal of the C++ bindings at some future date (beyond v1.9/v2.0).
