Is that possible to use clang to build libstdc++ without using GCC?

It should be possible, but might need some changes. We make no attempt
at portability in the libstdc++-v3/src/*/*.cc files, so they just make
use of GCC extensions without checking if they are supported (because
we know they are supported by GCC, and those files are only compiled
by GCC).
