For clang, I update FREEBSD_CC_VERSION much more conservatively now,
since bumping it requires everybody to do a full compiler bootstrap
during buildworld.  Basically only when:
* A major update is imported, such as going from 4.0.0 to 5.0.0.  Since
  that touches many files, it is better to ensure all parts of world are
  built with the new major version.
* There is a bug in the system compiler, preventing some or all users
  from building (parts of) world.
