This is a libstdc++ bug, in code which seems to be Win32-specific. The
code looks like this (around ext/concurrence.h:273):

    template<typename _Rm>
      static typename __enable_if<sizeof(&_Rm::sema), void>::__type
      _S_destroy(_Rm* __mx)

The intent appears to be to cause a substitution failure if there is
no _Rm::sema member, but the actual effect is that this is always
ill-formed in C++11 mode, since a pointer/pointer-to-member has size >
1, and thus the sizeof expression can't be narrowed to bool. You can
fix this header by casting the result of sizeof to bool:

      static typename __enable_if<(bool)sizeof(&_Rm::sema), void>::__type

I've filed this against libstdc++ as gcc.gnu.org/PR53578.
