Hey! Here are some ideas...
- I think it'd be great to include on the wiki a few examples of packages that do compile fine with Clang. That would help newbies start using it (without the risk of messing up their system).
- Also, perhaps you could have an FAQ with questions like, "Should I file a bug if the package fails to build with Clang? If not, is there some place I should report it?"
- Would it be kosher to post a link on this wiki to http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Llvm ?

- As to your (3), yes, it is allowed to link to external resources. It would be even better to make a page in the wiki here with all relevant information. — yngwin 07:36, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
What compiles and what doesn't
As at 28th of July, 2012, the following packages require GCC to compile on a x86 Gentoo build, Intel CPU, in a VirtualBox VM.

Gentoo bugs for compilation failures
- General tracker bug for Gentoo FreeBSD bug #417789
- dev-libs/libffi-3.0.11 bug #417179
- dev-libs/openssl-1.0.0j bug #417795
- sys-libs/ncurses-5.9-r2 bug #417763
The bugs I listed above have patches that fix build failures.
