openmpi 3.1.2 missing mpicxx




Hi,

The openmpi package version 3.1.2 no longer contains the mpicxx compiler
wrapper, which is present in 3.1.1 package. In the package update
announcement this is explicitly mentioned:

https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2018-09/msg00099.html

as being depreciated. I know that the C++ bindings for MPI have certainly
been depreciated, but the mpicxx wrapper itself is not; there are lots of
C++ programs that use MPI by using the C bindings. Certainly this was the
reason that was given for not removing mpicxx when someone suggested it:

https://github.com/open-mpi/ompi/issues/1686

Would it be possible to reinstate the mpicxx wrapper?

Many thanks,

Andy
