About different ABI between gcc and clang

I am looking at this page:

There is something that I don't quite understand and would appreciate the
help of the experts, like Matthew:-)

due to different ABI between gcc and clang, libcppunit needs to be
installed twice, one with the g++ ABI and one with clang's. The default
compiler for freebsd-9 is gcc; to setup the version for clang, configure it
as  CC=clang35 CXX=clang++35 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/clang-abi

Can someone explain that portion to me? What is the writer suggesting I do?
