A quirk of the FreeBSD release schedule means that 11.4 (June 2020) is newer than
12.1 (November 2019).

Evidently clang 9.0 came and went pretty quickly.

I suspect clang 10.0 will be released with FreeBSD 12.2, expected in October 2020.

Though in the meantime you can install clang 10.0 from Ports:

pkg install llvm10

Then use /usr/local/bin/clang10 instead of /usr/bin/clang.
