C++11 is required for master. Either your compiler is too old and is lying to configure about its C++11 status or you have a defective stdint.h. Even if you manage to solve this problem it's likely that you'll have more as the C++ rewrite proceeds.

We are deliberately pushing the envelope on compiler capability here in order to use the new language features; not all current stable distros are going to be able to build master, never mind even slightly obsolete ones. Sorry.
