From the log, he's using "Apple LLVM version 4.2 (clang-425.0.28) (based on LLVM 3.2svn)" on "darwin/11.4.2 (Mac OS X 10.7)". From the XcodeVersionInfo wiki page, this corresponds to Xcode 4.6.2 or Xcode 4.6.3; the latter is the latest version of Xcode available for 10.7.

Do note however that the log was not a clean attempt; a clean build should be attempted to see if the problem remains.
