>From what I see there is currently just over 1K ports failing, and not
all off them are due to Clang. This number is perfectly manageable to solve
within several months timeframe. Quite a fraction of those Clang-failing
ports (judging from the commit logs) are solvable by passing -Wno-foobar
to CFLAGS. So I think a real fix is needed for a few hundreds of ports.

Ports should build with any compiler, ideally. Those ports who fail should
be fixed, or marked as GCC-only as a last resort.
