(Not meaning to pollute bugzilla yet, hence by mail -- feel free to
upload whichever portions of this to the PR that you feel like, unless
you contort the context. Everyone be aware of Jan's CPPFLAGS hints in
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=209467#c5 that
rawtherapee does not currently set explicitly.)

I was wondering... for the rawtherapee build in the ports framework I'm
doing this (shown below), namely, force the port to use *libc++ with
GCC* (I need(ed) to force GCC because clang used to lack OpenMP support,
and I needed to match the C++ standard library to what the base system
provides by default, that's why it is under the COMPILER_FEATURES check).
I think the original idea was from Baptiste Daroussin.

I was wondering if it would work for Yuri as well on 9.3 (where
graphics/rawtherapee would not normally use it because libc++ isn't part
of COMPILER_FEATURES there).  The key will certainly be -nostdinc++ to
get GNU libstdc++ out of the way and the flags to pull the ports libc++ in.

The additional difficulty will be that the third-party requisite C++
libraries, if any,  would likely have to be recompiled the same way.

Mixing and matching GNU libstdc++ and libc++ in the same executable
won't work (because these two libraries only agree on the API more or
less, but neither the ABI nor the internal structure layouts).


62 	.if ${COMPILER_FEATURES:Mlibc++}
63 	LDFLAGS+=       -L/usr/local/lib/c++
64 	CXXFLAGS+=      -nostdinc++ -isystem /usr/local/include/c++/v1
65 	CFLAGS+=        -isystem /usr/local/include/c++/v1
67 	.endif
