Description

Clang does not admit -std=gnu++98 for C, as it is a C++ flag, thus it fails with error despite gcc and other seems to accept it even in C mode.

The fix is pretty simple, by using CMAKE_C_FLAGS instead of ADD_DEFINITIONS for setting that flag (also ADD_DEFINITIONS is not supposed to use for other kind of flags which are not -DXXXX).

Thanks for reporting this and providing the patch.

I'm very surprised by this because I use a Mac as my development machine on which the compiler is clang. I'll investigate your patch on Linux/clang and get back to you.

I'm on vacation at the moment and will do the work as time permits.

An important fact is that it fails with clang-6, not with previous versions as the if condition above is not met.

I'm on vacation in Montana, USA and can't get clang to download. I think something's blocking my internet connection. Can you submit a PR on https://github.com/exiv2/exiv2 and another member of Team Exiv2 will give this attention.

I've reviewed github repository, seems it is already fixed there, I was affected probably by an old snapshot of exiv2 for Gentoo.

Sorry for the inconvenience :)
