Isn't it about time to put a note into UPDATING that ALL versions of LLVM
older than 3.9 (LLVM39) should be deleted "pkg delete LLVM??" before
attempting to build the new Xorg software. I guess that includes libGL,
libGLU, libdrm, dri and libglapi. Maybe xorg-server and xorg-drivers, too.
Otherwise these reports are just going  to keep rolling in. (Well, that
won't stop them, but might slow them down and make it easy to tell people
where to find the fix.)

I'm still nervous about re-starting X because I may have missed something.
