What about the ports?  Lots of ports already have dependencies on GCC from
ports as they don't build/run properly with GCC 4.2.1.  How is this any

There have been reports on other lists from people using Clang to build
their ports, with very few failures.  It's a "simple" matter to add a
dependency on GCC from ports for those that do fail.  Which is already being
done for ports that don't work with GCC 4.2.1.

Several -exp runs have already been done on the ports tree using Clang.

No idea about benchmarks.
