 I was going to say "a word to the wise", but I think "a word to the
 foolish" might be more appropriate (as in "trying to build modern software
 from source is foolish and will cause you pain") - firefox-56 (due later
 this month) is trying to move to 'stylo' (new CSS code). That has problems
 (can't use system nspr or pixman, it can't find the headers
 ]https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1341234] - comment 10 seems
 particularly appropriate), but if those are fixed, or else when stylo is
 no longer optional, clang '''will''' be required for firefox (one of the
 cargo files needs it).

 In circumstances where stylo is enabled, LLVM-4.0.1 is fine - whether or
 not LLVM-5 will work remains to be determined.
