Indeed it was easy to do. I first created my own setup as described on the web
site, starting from existing config files and then removing a couple of
unknown header files in my environment.
After that, the only remaining problem was the type_traits library that
include the <cstddef> header in several places to have access to the
definition of std::size_t. I simply created my own version of the cstddef
header with the appropriate definition for std::size_t and now everything

Thanks for your help,
