[macports-ports] 06/10: octave: use cxx_stdlib instead of configure.cxx_stdlib

cxx_stdlib is a variable that can be set in
See LibcxxOnOlderSystems [1] for an example of its usage.
It is the default value of configure.cxx_stdlib [2].
The cxx11 PG replaces libstdc++ with macports-libstdc++ in
configure.cxx_stdlib [3].
So the code
    if {${configure.cxx_stdlib} ne "libstdc++"} {
was incorrect.

As you point out, however, cxx_stdlib is not used in any other
Portfile and so should probably be avoided.
I will rewrite the code to only use configure.cxx_stdlib as soon as I
get the chance.
