configure: Auto-detect and enable C++11 support if available
Enabling support for C++11 adds CONFIG+=c++11 to the Qt build. Projects using Qt can check for C++11 support using contains(QT_CONFIG, c++11) in their .pr[iof] files. The QMAKE_CXXFLAGS_CXX11 and QMAKE_LFLAGS_CXX11 qmake varibles contain any arguments the compiler needs to enable C++11. CONFIG+=c++11 adds these arguments to the build. Support for clang, g++, and the Intel C++ Compiler for Linux are included in this commit.

+- Qt is compiled with C++11 support enabled by default, provided the compiler
+ supports C++11. Qmake based projects can enable C++11 support explicitly
+ using 'CONFIG+=c++11' in their .pro files. To enable it conditionally, use
+ 'contains(QT_CONFIG,c++11):CONFIG+=c++11'. This will enable C++11 support
+ only if Qt was built with C++11 support.
