#4204: Xorg Intel Driver
-------------------------+-------------------------
 Reporter:  jon lee      |      Owner:  blfs-book@…
     Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |  Milestone:  current
Component:  BOOK         |    Version:  SVN
 Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:  Intel Xorg
-------------------------+-------------------------
 I noticed a configure check for clang in the Intel Xorg driver, found
 here:
 http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/svn/x/x7driver.html

 Since clang has to be used to build the mesa radeon drivers, (and
 reportedly improves performance there),  I attempted to use it to build
 the Intel driver.

 Using:

 export CC=clang
 export CXX=clang
 export CFLAGS="-std=gnu89 -g"

 before the ./configure... this will improve compile time greatly and the
 resulting driver performs much better as well.
