General Development The LLVM Project recently released a new version of their compiler, optimizer and code generators. LLVM includes a drop-in GCC-compatible C/C++ and ObjC compiler, mature optimization technology (including cross file/whole program optimization), and a highly optimizing code generator. For people who enjoy hacking on compilers and runtimes, LLVM provides libraries for implementing custom optimizers and code generators including JIT compiler support. This release is the first to provide beta GCC 4.2 compatibility as well as the new "clang" C/ObjC front-end, which provides capabilities to build source-to-source translators and many other tools.

"I'm not having another one to with what constitutes a port vs default install, because the bottom line is I don't care"

It's easy to ignore the truth of something if you don't care.

I wasn't playing any elitist games, I was correcting an error you made. If you can't take getting corrected or being disagreed with, better cancel your internet account and turn your computer off.
