True. And I'd have done that for smaller ports. Building llvm + clang and having it installed in several variants would take me more time and other resources than I find reasonable.
Besides, I'm experiencing difficulties building clang-3.6 as it is (10.9.5, CommandLineTools 6.1 and Xcode 5.1).

That it is, and I've been finding myself missing that feature on my Linux boxes quite a few times already.
