  clang: default to DWARF 4 as of FreeBSD 13

  FreeBSD previously defaulted to DWARF 2 because several tools (gdb,
  ctfconvert, etc.) did not support later versions.  These have either
  been fixed or are deprecated.

  Note that gdb 6 still exists but has been moved out of $PATH into
  /usr/libexec and is intended only for use by crashinfo(8).  The kernel
  build sets the DWARF version explicitly via -gdwarf2, so this should
  have no effect there.
