Well the reason is simple - libmfx and projectM can't be built in C++11 
mode right now. If we remove this hardcoding that I did, you'll still get 
these modules built in C++98 mode if you have a compiler that defaults to 
that mode, or you'll get a build error for compilers new enough to default 
to C++ >= 11 (clang 6.0, GCC 6).
