[Osi] compiling on macOS with gcc 8

Hi Antonio,

Yeah, I put some effort into trying to figure out the compiler error with
clang and FlopC++, but it's really obscure and I ultimately failed.

The problem you're having with gcc 8 will likely be fixed once we upgrade
to a more recent version of the autotools, which is in the works. For now,
though, you can override flags, too, when you invoke the configure script.
Can you grep in config.status and see what CXXFLAGS is set to? Assuming
there is a -V there, you can try stripping it out and set CXXFLAGS manually
just as you set CXX. Let me know how it goes. I do have access to a Mac and
can try to get it working myself, but not for a few days.
