Are the other steps described in the LibcxxOnOlderSystems instructions for 10.6 not necessary for 10.8?

If I understood correctly Apple's clang natively does what stock clang needs to be patched for.

Both 3.8 and 3.9 are at rev 3 but I'd rather assume I could patch llvm portfile manually and use your patch file 999.
