Which build are you talking about? The split source packages shouldn't have a problem with this. 

For the unified source packages, we should probably simply skip the module if the compiler is not c++11 compliant. But I see no reason to remove it for compilers that can handle it. It's certainly not different from other modules such as web engine that also have stricter requirements on compilers or platforms than e.g. Qtbase.
