NetBSD Working On Better LLVM Toolchain Support

BSD --
While a number of BSDs already have great LLVM toolchain support and are generally quite fond of this liberally licensed compiler alternative to GCC, the NetBSD support has lagged behind a bit for LLVM but that is continuing to improve.

More LLVM test failures are being addressed not only for LLVM/Clang but also for the LLD linker, libunwind, LLVM OpenMP, libc++, etc. Clang and libc++ have been the biggest benefactors in getting fixes/improvements. Future work is focusing on better Compiler-RT coverage and porting LLD to yield working executables on NetBSD.

NetBSD / LLVM fans can learn more about this ongoing work via the NetBSD blog.
