# SYNOPSIS
#
#   AX_CXX_COMPILE_STDCXX_11([ext|noext],[mandatory|optional])
#
# DESCRIPTION
#
#   Check for baseline language coverage in the compiler for the C++11
#   standard; if necessary, add switches to CXXFLAGS to enable support.
#
#   The first argument, if specified, indicates whether you insist on an
#   extended mode (e.g. -std=gnu++11) or a strict conformance mode (e.g.
#   -std=c++11).  If neither is specified, you get whatever works, with
#   preference for an extended mode.
#
#   The second argument, if specified 'mandatory' or if left unspecified,
#   indicates that baseline C++11 support is required and that the macro
#   should error out if no mode with that support is found.  If specified
#   'optional', then configuration proceeds regardless, after defining
#   HAVE_CXX11 if and only if a supporting mode is found.
