Hi, I would like to propose to integrate clang/LLVM into FreeBSD HEAD in the near future (days, not weeks).
clang/LLVM is a C/C++/ObjC compiler (framework) which aims to possibly replace gcc. It is BSDL-like licensed. The sources are ~45MB (the svn checkout is 97MB). Clang/LLVM is written in C++. Clang can compile all of FreeBSD on i386/amd64 including world and booting kernel. Other architectures that are close to working are MIPS, PowerPC and ARM. We have a branch (clangbsd-import) that just includes clang/LLVM sources and the build infrastructure and this is what we aim to integrate at first. The import of clang/LLVM was discussed at the toolchain summit May 10th but I would like to hear your opinion. I got approval from core@ on importing it. So please share your support or resistance to the idea of importing clang. Roman Divacky
