The LLVM Core libraries provide a modern source- and target-independent
optimizer, along with code generation support for many popular CPUs (as
well as some less common ones!) These libraries are built around a well
specified code representation known as the LLVM intermediate
Clang is an LLVM native C/C++/ObjC compiler, which aims to deliver
amazingly fast compiles, extremely useful error and warning messages and to
provide a platform for building great source level tools. The Clang Static
Analyzer is a tool that automatically finds bugs in your code, and is a
great example of the sort of tool that can be built using the Clang
frontend as a library to parse C/C++ code.
This is an update to the latest upstream stable release, with some package
and feature changes:
* Support for all targets has been enabled in LLVM and Clang. As a
consequence thereof, LLVM is built with shared individual libraries to
avoid an unusally large single LLVM library.
* The Polly library is built together with LLVM, and support for
optimizations enabled thereby is now available in LLVM and Clang commands.
* libunwind has been added as an alternative exception handler library, and
is used by libc++abi, and linked by default when using compiler-rt.

We don't have separate libgcc-devel/libstdc++-devel/etc. from our gcc
package like Debian does. Perhaps we should for this purpose, since we
don't call any of the gcc binaries in clang anymore.
