Thanks. Moving to -std=c++11 would be cool!

Yeah, I'm worried about that. Many packages are using -std=gnu99
(e.g. glibc, elfutils, maybe emacs) and these won't be affected at
all. But e.g. gdb/binutils use the default standard I think. I
wonder about Linux kernel.
And of course, C++ packages should be out of the picture here.
