Compile BRL-CAD with LLVM trunk

completed by: Marc Tannous

mentors: Mihai Neacsu, Hardeep Singh Rai

BRL-CAD builds pervasively on a number of different operating systems, hardware, and compilers. We actively seek out new compilation environments and like to get them working as best as we can. We regularly build with Microsoft Visual Studio (the professional one you have to pay for), GCC, and a number of other compilers.

This task involves attempting to compile BRL-CAD using the latest and greatest version of LLVM's Clang compiler directly from their source repository. You'll need to download our source code, CMake, checkout the LLVM source code, and compile your compiler. Then compile BRL-CAD and keep notes of everything you do along the way. You'll report back any failures and otherwise document all the steps you take. Submit a complete build log and your notes documenting everything you did.

Please include any fixes you make to get the build working. You MUST first compile BRL-CAD successfully with any other compiler before claiming this task.
