Waiting for clang. Forever and ever.
FreeBSD compiles with LLVM/clang by default. Part of this is compiling the compiler to accommodate upgrades of the compiler.
On my laptop FreeBSD compiles in about 2 hours. But clang takes 2 hours on its own. The culprit is that now and than a small fix is made to the compiler which triggers 2 hours of extra building.
It is also possible to install llvm as a pkg. This saves you hours of compiling. I tried to built base with the port, but it did not succeed yet. I now have setup FreeBSD in a container (FreeBSD jail) which helps greatly in fixing mistakes instead of a non bootable system without a working compiler I can now just reinstall the container from a working host.
My changes to make this working:
This is on:
FreeBSD sjakie 13.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT #11 r364932M: Sat Aug 29 03:21:18 CEST 2020
Add to /etc/src.conf:
Add to /etc/make.conf:
And "pkg install llvm11" or the llvm version that is current in your version of FreeBSD.
Next up: configuring this on my Raspberry Pi 3 on which compilation takes far longer, so the win is much bigger.
