Hi Michael,

No, not that the case. Sorry for the ambiguity. Configure script contains a
check whether std::shared_ptr exists and if not then it disables collada
support silently (because collada libraries use shared_ptr). So it was not
about the packager.
So, I guess the solution will be to kill all C++11 code from collada2gltf.

Thanks guys,
