I'd be surprised if this was the wrapper compiler, but it can be
pretty easy to choke a C++ compiler and make it take a long time to
compile. An easy way to figure out which is the problem is to use
the command:

   mpiCC -o mathbyvec.out -showme

which will cause the wrapper compiler to show what command it is
going to execute rather than executing it. You can then take that
command and run it. If the underlying compiler takes a long time to
run, you know where the problem lies.
