14 Currently the ebuilds for libunwind, libc++abi and libc++ all involve
15 some hackery to support standalone build. And the package clang is
16 just a placeholder, while it's actually built in llvm.
18 Maybe we can put them all into the llvm package, and control what
19 components to build via USE flags.
