Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Windows C++ Linker Error "unresolved symbol" for MPI::Datatype::Free

If someone wants to submit a patch and/or make 1.6.4 binaries, we could move forward with that.

Please do so on the devel list, however -- not the users list (we've been a bit sloppy about separating users/devel recently; let's try to be better).

The Windows CMAKE "BUILD_SHARED_LIBS" option is therefore busted. On a static lib build everything's in there, a dumpbin shows all the MPI::Datatype symbols. Those symbols are missing all the way back into 1.5 shared-lib builds as well.

It's not there in the Linux version either, so I don't know where the Linux build is getting that symbol from, that link should fail too. Is the C++ version of OpenMPI actually broken overall?
