I have been doing this (on a daily basis) with both head & stable/9 on
my home "build machine" and my laptop since 12 Jul 2012; I have seen no
problems or issues. (I build my ports under stable/8 & have /usr/local
in common across all 4 slices on each machine.)
Here's what's in my /etc/src.conf for stable/9:
When I update my "production" machines at home from stable/8 to stable/9
(probably shortly after 9.1 is released), they will (by necessity) also
migrate to FreeBSD built with llvm/clang (as they get installed what the
build machine builds).
