General Development No April Foolery: The Portable C Compiler version 1.0 was released on April 1st! As with so many things BSD, this project proves that good code is timeless and can benefit from literally generations of review. It can build the majority of the BSD base systems (C++ code aside) and is undergoing continuous improvement.

I think the point is the license. Its not GPL.

Clang/LLVM is not released under the GPL. I think it is released under the University of Illinois/NCSA Open Source License.
see http://llvm.org/docs/DeveloperPolicy.html#license for more information on Clang/LLVM licensing. Oh the other hand what's wrong with the GCC using the GPL unless you want to make a commercial compiler?
