I'm very skeptical this is a decent testcase, at least alone. ./clang --help takes no time to start up, so, even if you show there's a speed-up it's very hard to understand if it's a real improvement or just noise.
I recommend to try a class of application where load time is a dominant factor, e.g. browsers. I would claim trhat Firefox or Chromium are decent candidates. YMMV.
