I am sure http://bb.pgr.jp/ has been C++11 ready.
- gcc-4.4 and msc16 were dropped.
- Linux builders use gcc-4.7.2 (SL based homebrew)
- Introduced mingw-w64-gcc-4.8.1 (for now targeting x64)
- All CMake builders are configured with LLVM_ENABLE_CXX11=ON.
- configure will run as-is. expected to follow default option.
a few new builders will come. Working in progress.
