Hi Boris,

wclang looks like overkill if we were going to introduce clang support in MXE. 
We’d have a specific version to support and predictable paths, so would simply 
use shell wrappers for the cross-tools (as we do with pkg-config). We’d 
probably also use the llvm equivalents of binutils and build the runtime from 
source (it’s not clear how much wclang depends on an existing cross-toolchain).

From the looks of it, you can probably already use both yourself - with some 
symlinks and $PATH manipulation. There’s some hard-coded gcc/g++ calls in MXE 
(particularly test invocations), and we could be better about respecting “CC".
