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.
