Yes, the bug is fixed in 11-CURRENT, as of Subversion revision r262809.

In FreeBSD, fixes are first applied to head (a.k.a -CURRENT), then
after a certain period they are merged to one more -STABLE branches,
depending on the type of fix.  This procedure is traditionally called
a Merge From Current, MFC.

In this particular case, I will merge the fix to both 10-STABLE and
9-STABLE.  Older branches do not have clang, so merging the fix to
them makes no sense.

Don Lewis already mentioned the libxul port, and in general, any port
based on certain parts of the Mozilla source tree could be affected.
