Don't. This is a MASSIVE undertaking that's simply not worth it. If your 
worry is a lack of a C++ compiler for some platform, it's easier to port 
Clang to that platform. If your worry is company policy or something 
like that, it's probably easier to start a conspiracy that ends up with 
the whole management replaced with more C++-friendly people than to 
rewrite Clang and LLVM.
