I can also confirm the problem, at least on stable/9 (different
revisions from the past 2-3 weeks):

1. LO builds and runs without problem* on GCC-built system.

2. LO, built on a GCC-built system, fails to run on a Clang-built one.

3. LO fails to build on a Clang-built system, getting stuck with
cppunittest, just like Doug explained in his first e-mail.

4. LO builds successfully on a Clang-built system with DEBUG=on, and
then runs fine (for a debug build, that is). I haven't touched the other
options, so they don't seem to make much (or any) difference:

     WEBDAV=on "Support webdav protocol"
     KDE4=off "With Qt4/KDE4 vclplug support"
     GTK=on "With GTK vclplug support"
     GNOME=on "Better integration in gnome environnement"
     JAVA=on "Add Java support (XML Filters, macros)"
     PYUNO=on "Allow to script libreoffice in python"
     SYSTRAY=on "Enable systemtry quickstarter"
     MMEDIA=on "Enable multimedia backend for impress"
     SDK=off "Build with SDK"

Basically clean make.conf, with only Perl and Ruby version variables.

*) Actually, the first instance seems to always segfault (and dump core)
to me, however this is most likely unrelated to the current problem, as
I've been noticing it for some time and on GCC-built systems, too.
