Yes, I'd be happy to take a patch for this, or I suppose you could
just hack it out locally when building.

Did we have that for 3.7 too?

That's perfectly fine. Including OpenMP by default is new for this
release, so if it causes any problems, just exclude it.

> * Last but not least: the host compiler on FreeBSD 10.x is clang 3.4.1 (the last version that can build without C++11 support), and it crashes with a segfault during building of CGBlocks.cpp.  I'll need to find some way to work around this failure, since we cannot upgrade the compiler easily on FreeBSD 10.x.

This sounds like the biggest problem. Is there a PR for the crash? I
suppose the alternatives are either to try not to tickle the crash in
our source, or fixing the 3.4.1 compiler?

E.g. the way the source code is checked out with symlinks all over the place does not work, and I need to add a custom patch to clang-tools-extra to make the tests succeed, because there is a race condition in the Makefile.

:-( What's not working with the symlinks? Please send patches. I'm
sorry for the trouble here.
