[CFT]: ClangBSD is selfhosting, we need testers now

ClangBSD is a branch of FreeBSD that aims at integrating clang (clang.llvm.org)
into FreeBSD, replacing GCC as a system compiler.
Recently, we've achieved the state when clang can compile all of FreeBSD world
on i386/amd64 platforms (including all the C++ apps we have and itself)
and a bootable kernel. Thus we feel that the time has come to ask the FreeBSD
community for wider testing on i386/amd64 (you sure can help with other
platforms too :)).
How to setup ClangBSD:
The default configuration of ClangBSD requires clang installed so you can
either install fresh llvm-devel port (portinstall devel/llvm-devel) or change
CC to "gcc" and CXX to "g++" in share/mk/sys.mk. I recommend the former.
svn co http://svn.freebsd.org/base/projects/clangbsd/ clangbsd
cd clangbsd && make buildworld
echo NO_WERROR= >> /etc/make.conf
echo WERROR= >> /etc/make.conf
make DESTDIR=/clangbsd-chroot/ installworld
now you have ClangBSD world installed and you can chroot into it. I don't
recommend installing ClangBSD into real root as it is not tested enough.
You can also start using clang compiled kernel - either build the kernel in
the ClangBSD chroot (set NO_WERROR=yo and WERROR=yo in /etc/src.conf) or set
CC to clang and build kernel the normal way.
This information (and more) is also provided on:
We kindly ask you to setup ClangBSD chroot and/or use clang compiled kernel and
use it as you would normally use FreeBSD. Please report back
