Hi all,
as some of you might be aware, I have been working on NetBSD integration
of LLVM and Clang for some time now. Executive summary is that
NetBSD/x86 has been usable with LLVM/Clang for a long time now and most
packages in pkgsrc work fine with it as well. There are a few
problematic cases depending on extensions of either the GCC frontend
(like the ability to create nested functions in C) or the run time
environment (like creating STL streams from FILE instances). I think
from the high impact packages, only OpenJDK and OOo/LibreOffice are very

At this point, I would like to import the LLVM and Clang sources to make
it easier to test the new toolchain without needing SVN. I would still
strongly request that *no* local changes are made. I will discuss a
NetBSD branch in the relevant upstream repositories that can be used for
merging "temporary" / "local" changes for import in our tree.

From my perspective, having llvm/clang in-tree will allow me to (easily) add it to the bulk builds, which will be helpful to keep it from breaking.

I would like to see this happen.
