I agree that this is a better solution for the book if it works. There
is some internal configure code that searches for clang. If is does
work, I'm not sure CXX is required for cups. I quick look does not show

When we get some time I'd like to add mariadb. I'd also like to then
drop mysql, but that requires a bit more discussion.
