Test show only that clang-compiled binaries are still subject for 
improvement. It doesn't show how strict and clear this binary is.

You mileage may vary. I'm using clang-compiled world & ports on 
production servers since clang was added to the ports. And nothing bad 
happens to me.

That what you do too. You are stating clang is less potent only by 
counting speed estimates. You leave aside things like standard 
compliance, ease of use and healthy ecosystem.

Besides, NetBSD and OpenBSD has already selected and using pcc now. And 
they are fine with that one.

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow.
