Good news everyone!

As I mentioned at BSDCan, I was going to import my FreeBSD+Clang branch
into SVN. Tuesday I finally had some time to do it, so here's the

You can now build your very own version of FreeBSD with Clang installed
as /usr/bin/cc as follows:

- Check out the clangbsd branch from our SVN repository:
  svn co svn://

- Put this in /etc/src.conf:

- Just run `make buildworld' and `make installworld'.

You probably don't want to install it on top of your running system. I
strongly advise you to create a separate jail to do all your testing
with. When using a jail, you probably want to add NO_FSCHG= to
/etc/src.conf as well to keep `make installworld' happy.

So far we've only done testing on amd64 and i386. A lot of ports are
probably still broken. Caveat emptor. Beware of dog. Slippery when wet.
