Just be aware that stable clang has some issue with the stable 
binutils, to fix this make sure to use binutils from ports.

To be able to test on stable:
export CC=clang
export CXX=clang++
PATH=/usr/local/bin:${PATH} make -C myport
the ld from localbase is found first so clang uses it.

currently from my testing everything that succeed compiling with this 
also succeed on current
and everything that fail on current also fails this way.
