Since no one else has answered:

There was some talk a year or two ago about designing some sort of build
server using clang, but I don't think anything came of it. There
certainly isn't any code in trunk to leverage multiple cores, and I am
not entirely sure how thread-safe LLVM/Clang are by default. I think
there is support for using the library from multiple threads, but I
think it boils down to using entirely seperate contexts for them.
