I run Mac OS X El Capitan 10.4. I have used brew to install Compilation Tools (https://www.topbug.net/blog/2013/04/14/install-and-use-gnu-command-line-tools-in-mac-os-x/).

Now when I run make, it still appends to:

 /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/g++ -c -pipe -stdlib=libc++ -fstack-protector-all --param ssp-buffer-size=1 -O2 -std=gnu++11 -isysroot

export PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH

To be sure that will work, restart the terminal and then:
