Changing gcc to clang should be done for technical reasons, I would
rather not give this advice to address what seems like an incomplete
understanding of the licensing situation.

I was merely replying to question about if llvm could replace it. For licensing related question I refrain because I don’t have expertise in that it’s best to consult some one who knows this stuff and understands it. Least I will misguide someone
