 The problem only occurs if people build clang (I've just put llvm on
my PATH and confirmed I can still build cups).

 Somebody saw this on -support the other week.  I think the fix was to
use "CC=gcc CXX=g++" in front of configure.

 Mesa recommends llvm because radeon 3D drivers need them.  For (at
least) intel it doesn't *need* llvm.
