More. That's at least a dozen in the configure script, since we need to ensure 
someone didn't pass the impossible combination -c++14 -no-c++11.

Then there's the configure.exe source.

And then there's C++1z, plus possibly enabling Concepts Lite TS.

And all for what? What do people gain by passing -no-c++11 today?
