Back in the day, people were adding various USE=c++0x, USE=c++11... flags to enable building with newer C++ standard.  For many packages it made little sense (why does the C++ standard for final executable matter?), today it makes even less sense since compilers default to C++14/gnu++14.  Therefore, the flags usually cause *older* standard being used.  This is the tracker for such cases.
