I did a first pass at back-porting Austin's clang-compatibility patches from HEAD to 7.6.3 in anticipating of a 7.6.4 release, or at least some sort of update for OS X 10.9 folks.

The back-ported commits are on branches in my GHC GitHub repo:

ghc-7.6.3-clang (just clang stuff) ghc-7.6.3-clang+mavericks (clang stuff + 10.9 fixes)

I haven't tested this fully yet, or even compiled it yet with the latest changes, but I think I caught most of the stuff that might cause problems.

(Actually I just tried now and there's another error further along I still need to track down.)

There are a few other rough edges still: warnings, etc. Also, if you want to use the validate script, you'll need to turn off Werror. Anyway, I'll try to get remaining stuff sorted out and get some binaries up in the next couple of days.

Does this address #8493 as well?

I don't think it addresses the CPP matters yet, theres a lot of other bits that need hammering on too. the CPP bits are in the roadmap though

I'm sorry, but there won't be a 7.6.4 release. See the status page for the current release plans.
