The configuration with the built-in clang++ in C++11 mode should just be
disabled; the default libstdc++ on Travis is 4.6 and is too broken for any
serious C++11 work.

Clang 3.5 uses libstdc++ 4.8, for which Config probably disables <regex> as
known non-working, which is why it passes.

Clang 3.6 and above on that configuration use libstdc++ 4.9, which we
probably assume is working, but apparently not on Clang (it doesn't like the
constant expression 1 << 32.)

So we should disable <regex> 4.9 on Clang. This:

says that _GLIBCXX_REGEX_STATE_LIMIT is defined on 5 and _GLIBCXX_RELEASE is
defined on 7, although I see that we have our own macro
BOOST_LIBSTDCXX_VERSION, so we could just use that.
