I don't want to belittle anyone's work here, but I am very disappointed
that it apparently takes more than 3 months (half the lifecycle of a
complete upstream llvm release!) to fix broken ports.  Don't maintainers
read their email, or care about their ports?

In fact, I thought this was the perfect timing, so that the quarterlies
are built with clang 6, and it has enough time to settle for the 11.2
slush.  If this was merged later, somebody else would probably have
grumbled that I had "merged it just before slush". :)
