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.
