Thanks for the info. This is actually the second report since I added 
this check in 2017.

GCC 4.6 has some early C++11 support:

The smartmontools code from current SVN uses some C++11 features. 
Building with GCC 4.6 might still work with the following configure cmd:

./configure --without-cxx11-option CXXFLAGS='-std=gnu++0x'

Source tarballs and Linux binaries are available at

These warnings could be safely ignored.
