You're not using GCC, you're using LLVM.

Even if you were using GCC "is this a bug?" questions are off-topic on
this list, they belong in the Bugzilla bug tracker or the gcc-help
mailing list, not here.

It sounds like your begin() function is declared to return an abstract
class by value, that is not possible in C++. THis has nothign to do
with range-based for, you just can't return an abstract class type
from a function.
