Hi Helmut, 2016-01-31 15:58:17 Helmut Grohne: > Unfortunately, for Makefile based build systems we cannot simply pass CC > to the build.

Just try: "CC=clang make foo" with a foo.c in the directory. There are however packages that explicitly set CC (to gcc) and other variables in the Makefile which is very annoying and IMO a bug. Timo
