Now you give me incentive to try current (HEAD) with Clang, on a separate partition from my 9.0-STABLE installation, if and when I get the time.
I could use the old 9.0-BETA1 partition.
I went straight for the wiki link you gave (PortsAndClang).
My information on wine not working with clang-compiled world came from the emailing list (freebsd-questions) rather than my own experience.
These pertinent messages come when the announcement of a new Wine-fbsd64 is announced.
Latest such message that I see is:
From: David Naylor <naylor.b.david at gmail.com>
Subject: Wine-fbsd64 updated to 1.4.1 (32bit Wine for 64bit FreeBSD)
Packages  for wine-fbsd64-1.4.1 have been uploaded to mediafire . The
packages for FreeBSD 10 use the pkgng*  format.
There are many reports that wine does not work with a clang compiled world
(help in fixing this problem is appreciated as it affects quite a few users).
The patch  for nVidia users is now included in the package and is run on
installation (if the relevant files are accessible). Please read the
installation messages for further information.
MD5 (wine-1.4.x-freebsd8/wine-fbsd64-1.4.1,1.tbz) =
MD5 (wine-1.4.x-freebsd9/wine-fbsd64-1.4.1,1.txz) =
MD5 (wine-1.4.x-freebsd10/wine-fbsd64-1.4.1,1.txz) =
 The patch is located at /usr/local/share/wine/patch-nvidia.sh
