Linux Clang can build a kernel now. "The kernel can successfully boot to runlevel 5 (aka X + networking) on the Macbook, both on bare metal and in Qemu. The kernel can successfully boot to runlevel 3 on a secondary test machine, a microATX desktop box (Intel Atom). I haven't tried to start X on this box yet. The kernel can self-host; I am currently running a 'fourth generation' self-hosted Linux kernel built by a 'fourth generation' Clang."

This is a great starting point
http://llvm.org/

I really want to have a go at creating my own little language for the hang of it, but time does not permit right now. Basically I could write a compiler for a new language that could be built on any number of platforms.

Nice...

Clang is an example of an app build using LLVM...
