I think this would be a great project. However, I would rephrase it
to be more concrete.
How about taking a linux distro like redhat or gentoo or whatever you
are familiar of comfortable with, and try compiling the whole thing
with llvm-gcc? As part of the GSoC project, you could file bug
reports for any issues you hit and help track down problems.
