Similar patches are used in the Debian package since 1.7.3-2, except for
NSS and WinCapi.  The latter is entirely irrelevant in Debian, and the
former mostly is in this case: OpenSSL is required in Build-Depends,
though NSS isn't explicitly disabled in the configure script, so if it
happens to be present, it breaks the build (for multiple unrelated
reasons, even without C++11).  But --without-nss helps with those.

Anyway, could you please give me instructions to reproduce the build
failure with C++11?  Adding in CXXFLAGS=-std=c++11 did not break the
1.7.3-4 build for me.  And what will I have to change once Xerces 3.2
enters the archive?
