I located a solution to the problem of Xcode 4.4 command-line tools not 
correctly installing under OS X 10.7.4. This was given in:


The solution is to do a direct download of the Xcode 4.4 command-line 
tools for Lion from:


And after mounting the downloaded .dmg and installing the pkg it 
contains, now Xcode preferences does persistently show the command-line 
tools as having been installed.

Still -- strange!

I'm not getting clang version 4.0 under OS X 10.7.4 even after
installing Xcode 4.4 and explicitly using the Xcode Preferences >

In fact, after I did that and it said the tools were installed, not only

   /usr/bin/clang --version

still show the old version 3.1, but when I reopened Xcode and its
preferences, it did not show the Command Line Tools as installed, but
rather had an Install button still.

Something isn't working correctly.
