Comment (by kencu):

 Yes, fair enough.

 the ocaml and go variants across the range of all the clang versions are
 just a mess. None of them work properly; I'm not sure when (or if) they
 ever did. They are found opportunistically on every version, which cases
 problems sometimes.

 The problem is LLVM has not written in proper toggles for them.

 A few macporters have tried to take this on and fix the cmake scripts, me
 included, but everyone got bogged down and quit once they realized it was
 harder to fix than expected.

 Upstream has discussed this, but don't find it a priority at present.
