Is that the build number we should be checking for llvm-gcc-4.2 in the portgroup? If so how do I obtain that number? Our wiki page says I should be able to get it from `llvm-gcc --version`, but I don't:

I just added the information I got from the upstream bug report.

The problem is that bugs in the compiler might occur both in the
frontend or in the backend. With the increasing compiler build number we
can assume the bug to be fixed in the corresponding backend. However,
for llvm-gcc the build number is not increasing, thus, we  would have to
rely on the LLVM version it has been linked to.

So, if I take the information from Wikipedia, this check should actually
blacklist LLVM < 2336.9.00.

On which system is this? On my Mountain Lion with Xcode 4.5.2, I get
details on the LLVM build version:

$ llvm-gcc --version |head -1
i686-apple-darwin11-llvm-gcc-4.2 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build
5658) (LLVM build 2336.11.00)
