Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Can not turn off C++ build.

I'll bet we're not disabling the C++ test properly when you disable the C++ bindings. Bummer. I'll file a bug, but I don't know when that will be fixed.

However, this kind of error typically only occurs when your C++ compiler fails altogether (e.g., it's broken). Check the config.log file and see what it says happened for this specific test -- it may well be that your C++ compiler is faulty and needs to be fixed anyway.
