Description Mark Linimon freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2019-08-09 10:35:04 UTC
There are a number of places in the ports tree where the string "clang<version" is called out.  When doing the work to identify stale versions of clang tree-wide, these instances cause extra work.

This tracking PR will list the individual patches to refactor these usages into LLVM_VER, as they are become available after testing on my system.

Note: this refactoring causes portlint to complain but IMHO this complication is worth tolerating to help ease maintainability.
