Post freeze, that's an interesting discussion.  I find that it's often a
tough call whether the pain of multiple versions outweighs the pain of

Maybe we just need to not update llvm/clang near the freeze.  In
hindsight, it was too big a change (by definition, since we entered the
freeze with unfixed fallout).  But, I didn't see it coming -- I
thought pkgsrc clang was just for users to use, and didn't realize how
