Clang is a frontend *for the LLVM compiler*. For more information,
check out the homepage , but I think you've already installed what
you're looking for.
Further questions about clang should probably go to cfe-dev  (if
you have questions about "hacking on clang") or cfe-users  (if you
have questions about "using clang").
