It's the system C and C++ compiler and much of the rest of the
toolchain.  http://www.llvm.org/

Yes, it can take a very long time to build compared to the rest of the
system.  but time spent on the compiler means that when it compiles
other software, it will be speedier, and that the resultant software
will itself perform better.
