I know of a small bug (pr14189) which breaks LTO and a bigger one:
when building compiler-rt the host compiler is used.

For these reasons I currently uses cmake for day to day development
but have to use configure to build the clang as I use as my system
compiler. If those issues are fixable, I would love to let autotools
