I'm back and I'm not happy (Clang not GCC)

Hi All

I have been away for a little while. (since about 1998 on the forums)

I recently installed FreeBSD 10.1 (as a VMWare 11.1 VM), tried to get a version of FreeBSD-arm (yes I am impatient) for a Raspberry PI 2 working from various source components. (a more recent u-boot-rpi, crochet modified, latest RPI boot files.. etc)

When I tried to piece it all together, I noticed that cortex-a7 CPU was unknown... WHAT? ( I am sure GCC supported it)

Then I noticed some strange fatal compiler errors - which is very strange for gcc, then I discovered Clang!!! (which does not support some arm CPUs)
FreeBSD clang version 3.4.1 (tags/RELEASE_34/dot1-final 208032) 20140512
Target: x86_64-unknown-freebsd10.1
Thread model: posix
NOT A PROBLEM... I will install GCC from lang/gcc48 (or pkg install gcc48)

Got the following from clang..
.... -Wwrite-strings -Wcast-qual -Wmissing-format-attribute -pedantic -Wno-long-long -Wno-variadic-macros -Wno-overlength-strings  -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/. -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/../include -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/../libcpp/include -I/usr/local/include  -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/../libdecnumber -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/../libdecnumber/dpd -I../libdecnumber -I.././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/../libbacktrace  -DLIBICONV_PLUG .././../gcc-4.8-20150212/gcc/alias.c -o alias.o

Raspberry Pi is closed hardware requiring tons of firmware. Never understood why NetBSD and FreeBSD bothered.
