A lot of GNU and Cygwin package build problems are avoided by building either
without any -std=... option, or equivalently with -std=gnu++nn, which enables
many non-portable GCC extensions and Unix features, instead of -std=c++nn, which
disables GCC extensions and Unix features, and accepts only portable features
supported by GCC and C++ headers you specify.

In general, try replacing -std=c... with -std=gnu... or omitting -std=... and
see if your program builds without errors or warnings.
Adding -Wall -Wextra will let you know if anything appears questionable to the

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
