Should work well. Apple is one of the bigger supporters of LLVM, so I'd
hope OS X would be a suitable dev platform.

The downside is that it will be slower than running Ubuntu natively.

Not much slower. VBox does an amazing job at getting near native
performance on modern machines (those with nested paging etc.). This is
definitely the best option if your computer has ~2g ram and 2+ cores. Give
the Ubuntu VM 2g and 1 (maybe 2) core/s and it should be fine.

Also, look into seamless mode. It lets you use windows opened in the VM in
the host OS. That sounds vague. Just Google it.
