This is already fixed. VS2015 is extremely new, and we had not tested
building Clang with it until recently. It turns out that some C++14
features that VS2015 implements and enables by default were incompatible
with some of Clang's code.

If you update to the latest llvm and clang svn and try again, you should
have better luck.
