Didn't a sort of consensus when switching to clang for base was
discussed, was that ports would start use a port-provided version of gcc
? The adoption of the ports gcc was stalled due to the unability to make
exp-runs, AFAIK.

What you are proposing is de-facto forking the whole open-source code
base. This cannot work, and in fact steals the FreeBSD resources for
something which has absolutely no relevance for FreeBSD project.

Ports should not be forced to use clang, either a ports gcc work
should be finished, or cc in HEAD switched back to gcc.  This is
de-facto blocker for the 10.0.
