Few years ago I read a very interesting article about the Coverity tool,
not that far from what Clang tooling infrastructure is about.

They talk about this very issue too: how to correctly analyze the build

If I remember well, after using man-in-the-middle attack against the
compiler invocations, they went into running the build process in
tracing mode to capture all the Windows subtleties for example. :-)

This is a very interesting article to read. It seems to be also
available with some related presentations too on

Parsing the output of "strace -f" may be your friend to start with on
Unix. :-)
