[Numpy-discussion] Why is g++ used for link with mingw ?

    I was wondering why the linking was done with g++ with mingw in 
numpy.distutils ? (I got some trouble because some function in math 
library are only defined for gcc and not g++, for example atanhf). This 
also means that g++ is required to build numpy, which is a bit strange 
since there is not a single C++ line; is there an issue I am missing, or 
is this legacy (the mingw tools in numpy.distutils seems to be 6 years 
old from the comments).
