Excellent.  If you only add -std=c++11 the errors will be

   $ echo '#include <sstream>' | gcc -std=c++11 -c -fsyntax-only -x c++ -

I beg your pardon for not specifying it in advance.  When my
own program fails I can easily come up with a minimal test
case, but I feel at a loss with huge projects and
complicated build scripts.

Can I update MinGW on Windows XP anymore?  My MinGW
Installation Manager fails with what I perceive as two

   1. Cannot open URL.
   2. Sync repository failed.

The URL in the error message is (typing from screen):
