for LO 4.3 and earlier releases the RHEL5 gcc is used, i don't remember
if it is gcc 4.1 or 4.4; we're only switching to a C++11 compiler for LO

actually most users will use the distro provided LO packages anyway and
those don't suffer from our ancient upstream RHEL5 baseline.

anyway, std::shared_ptr and boost::shared_ptr should be mostly the same,
so "find ... | xargs sed -i ..." should be able to fix things up quite
quickly to get a patch for the 4.3 branch.
