 Quite a few ports have Portfiles which include a setting for
 compiler.cxx_standard (usually with a value of 2011), but as far as I can
 tell this isn't documented in the guide anywhere.

 It does seem to be a useful setting to know about, particularly for ports
 which you want to have work in older releases of Mac OS X, where the
 default compiler doesn't support C++11, as it causes a different compiler
 to be used in the build process.

 It would be nice to have this documented by someone who understands the
 intended semantics.
