Perhaps this is already well-known, but the testsuite utterly fails on Mavericks. Most tests fail because of extra output from clang. Here is a representative:

Actual stderr output differs from expected:
--- ./tcfail188.stderr	2014-02-07 15:28:16.000000000 -0500
+++ ./tcfail188.comp.stderr	2014-04-28 14:37:03.000000000 -0400

+clang: warning: argument unused during compilation: '-D TABLES_NEXT_TO_CODE'
+clang: warning: argument unused during compilation: '-I .'
*** unexpected failure for tcfail188(normal)

Is this a local setting problem? Or is this something that can be fixed centrally?

This also affects Mac OS 10.8.5, for some tests. Specifically, llvm/should_compile/T{5486,5681,6158,7571} all fail with errors similar to the original report.

Carter and I confirmed that "validate" works well on Mac.
