Author: rakuco

New revision: 447032
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/447032

Log:
  Explicitly build with -std=gnu++03.

  The port fails to build with C++11 and later. GCC 6 uses -std=gnu++14 by
  default, and fails like this:

  xmlParser.cpp: In function 'char* stringDup(const char*, int)':
  xmlParser.cpp:464:36: error: cast from 'std::nullptr_t' to 'char' loses precision [-fpermissive]
           lpszNew[cbData] = (XMLCHAR)NULL;

  Since this version of animorph is from 2007 and the code has completely changed
  upstream (it does not even use C++ anymore), there is little point in fixing
  the code instead of just making it build like it did before.
