mpi++.h file missing in RH 9?

I upgraded from RH7.2 to RH9 and everything looked O.K. till I tried to re-compile my VTK4.0. The error I get says that in the mpi.h file there is the following line #include <mpi++.h>
and it cannot find this mpi++.h file. I do know that this file existed in RH7.2 and even in RH8.0, but I don't know why it's not in RH9, even if it is still called in this mpi.h file. I tried to install an old version of the mpi++.h file taken from RH8, but the libraries are not correct anymore and hence I cannot compile vtk with the MPI turned on. I even tried to take out that mpi++.h stuff from the mpi.h file, but without any luck (I got other errors regarding other missing libraries). I don't know what else I can try. I don't think that this is a vtk problem, but a RH9 one (if this mpi++.h file is not in the RH9 anymore, than it should not ask for it in the mpi.h file!) If any of you have any idea about what else I can try, please let me know.
Thank you very much.

From the lam package changelog:

* Fri Dec 20 2002 Elliot Lee <> 2:6.5.8-1

- Update to new version in hopes of a fix for varargs problems
- Since it doesn't fix it, turn off mpi2c++ altogether - a package
that builds without C++ wrappers is preferable to a package that doesn't
build at all
