            Bug ID: 43503
           Summary: Crash during build when removing instruction sets
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Macintosh
                OS: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P

I tried modifying the code generation of the Homebrew LLVM formula to build
without instructions illegal on my computer's CPU.

The version of clang that came with Xcode runs...

clang --version
Apple LLVM version 10.0.1 (clang-1001.0.46.4)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin18.5.0
Thread model: posix

but, clang build via Homebrew is failing when trying to remove instruction sets
not supported by my computer's CPU.


1. brew edit llvm



a) fails later

-DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING='--target=x86_64-apple-darwin16.6.0\ -mno-sse4a\
-mno-sse4.2\ -mno-avx'

b) fails earlier

-DCMAKE_CXX_FLAGS:STRING='--target=x86_64-apple-darwin16.6.0\ -mno-sse\
-mno-sse2\ -mno-sse3\ -mno-ssse3\ -mno-sse4a\ -mno-sse4.1\ -mno-sse4.2\

3. brew install --build-from-source --verbose llvm

4. LLVM build fails in different places depending upon which instruction sets
are turned off.

CPU Vendor String: GenuineIntel

    AMD         = No

    SSE4.2      = No
    AES-NI      = No

    AVX512-PF   = No
    AVX512-ER   = No

    AVX512-BW   = No
    AVX512-DQ   = No
    AVX512-IFMA = No
    AVX512-VBMI = No

    Safe to use AVX:     No
    Safe to use AVX512:  No

Just setting the following allows Homebrew LLVM to build but instructions
illegal on my computer's CPU are included causing a crash when trying to
compile the regex Python extension:

export CFLAGS=--target=x86_64-apple-darwin16.6.0
