I have no idea if gcc 4.2 has the same issue or not. I don't know the
reason why llvm-gcc adds that requirement, but it looks reasonable to
have. No compiler is 100% compatible with another. Trying to use
llvm-gcc I have found some interesting corner cases. The same has been
true for people trying to use icc. The actual cases are off topic for
this list, but I would be more then happy to discuss them somewhere
else. You can find most of them by looking at the bugs I opened or
fixed in the llvm bugzilla.

That is nice, but it has other incompatibilities (and is not the one I
am trying to get to work :-) ).
