Subject: Re: [OMPI users] CXX=no in config.status, breaks mpic++ wrapper

Jed --

Yes, you're right. This is something Brian bugged me about a few months ago, and I'm sorry to say that it hasn't bubbled up high enough in my priority list to look into yet. :-\

The issue is that we decided to stop building the MPI C++ bindings by default on the trunk (this does not, and will not, affect v1.7/v1.7 -- the C++ bindings are still built by default over there). We need to decouple the decision to build the C++ bindings from setting up the C++ wrapper compiler, and that just hasn't been done yet.

A workaround for now is to --enable-mpi-cxx, which will setup the MPI C++ bindings and setup the mpicxx wrapper compiler properly.
