Yes, I gave integrating clang some thought.
(that's what you mean by 'LLVM'?)

I didn't try myself but I think that this isn't fully correct:
I think that the LLVM code generators work on Linux and BSD as well,
not only OSX. Up to now, however, OSX is the only system
having a full cross tool chain (for iOS).

No. I think it would only make sense if libc++ is ported.
That seems to be a task larger than I can currently handle,
and I couldn't see that someone has started it yet.
AFAIK, even for FreeBSD it's not finished yet.

If you are interested in starting such a project I'd spend
some time helping out.
