The #warning printout indicates that the correct __cplusplus is selected, but the build should not succeed! All g++ compilers correctly error out with these -std settings.

Are you certain that the C++98/03 standards prohibit the standard
library from providing this function? It may well be that an
implementation is compliant as long as everything specified in the
standard is present and behaves correctly; providing additional
functionality may be irrelevant.
