    configure: add CXX11_CXXFLAGS to LLVM_CXXFLAGS
    Seemingly with LLVM7 and GCC 5.0, the former won't properly advertise
    -std=c++11 and the latter will choke.
    dd this temporary workaround, otherwise we'll get errors like:

Comment 1 Dylan Baker 2018-12-22 21:03:18 UTC
what compiler and what version? It wouldn't surprise me if old versions of gcc (Say 4.2) doesn't actually support C++11.
Comment 2 Dylan Baker 2018-12-22 21:25:13 UTC
Actually, it looks like std=c++11 was added in GCC 4.7, and before that you had to use std=c++0x. Clang added support for std=c++11 it looks like.

Comment 3 Gert Wollny 2018-12-23 08:30:22 UTC
Given the patch in question explicitly adds CXX11_CXXFLAGS in a section that is only taken into account when llvm is enabled the llvm version would also be relevant. 

AFAIR the last version before llvm-7 that didn't advertise -std=c++11 was  something like llvm-3.9, and there was a patch proposed by Emil that would bump the minimum required version to 5.0 (it didn't land yet, I guess because there was some andorid WIP patch in the series). With that support for -std=c++11 would become a requirement for builds that enable llvm.
Comment 4 Emil Velikov 2019-01-11 12:07:54 UTC
AFAICT we probe if the compiler supports -std... before using it.
If somehow that's not the case we ought to fix that, or fallback to one that owrks.

Patches welcome :-)
