chosing a C++ version/compiler (was: icu wants c++11)

pkgsrc should be chosing a default compiler version per OS/branch just like
it choses a default Python or PHP or whatnot version.
The default should be overrideble in mk.conf and the infrastructure should
error out if a package requires an incompatible compiler version (e.g., a
language level not supported by the chosen compiler). Just like with PHP,
Python or whatnot versions.
Of course pkgsrc needs a sensible replacement for ``I need GCC 8.15'' or
``I need c++14/18'' first. I don't know enough about C++, but maybe something
like ``I need at least C++ level 11'' and ``I'm incompatible with GCC 5.3''
Is C++n a superset of C++m for n>m?
