FYI: The compile-feature [1] is used by the CMake Config files installed by 
Qt. For Qt it is used to figure out when and how to pass the i.e. the resp. `-
std=...` flag for GNU-like compilers for users of Qt.

Usually you get that kind of error in case you're trying to use an unsupported 
compiler for which CMake doesn't know the availability of the C++ features. A 
typical example is Android GCC.

I'm surprised you get that error by a standard GCC...? Would be nice to figure 
out what's going wrong. Maybe `cmake --trace` or `cmake --debug-output` can 

Please check the following link for a work-around:
