There are no concrete plans to ditch gcc from the base system.
The GPLv3 license of GCC and binutils does pose a few interesting
problems. On the other hand, Clang is a nice project, whose license
*is* compatible with a BSD-style license. Several FreeBSD developers
have tried building the base system with it and are active at the
development forums of Clang.
So it's probably a safe assumption to make that Clang is not ready
*yet*, but may be an interesting alternative to GCC in the near future.
