So you should probably change that to just "scan-build make" (as LO's 
default make target automatically calls ./, which in turn 
calls ./configure, as necessary), which would hopefully lead to LO's 
./configure seeing a CXX that is the actual scan-build "fake compiler," 
which would in turn hopefully lead to the detection that -std=gnu++11 
does not work kicking in (as at least the static analyzer part of the 
fake compiler would fail on #include <vector>, even if the gcc part
