I've uploaded llvm 2.6-1 to [community-testing]. It doesn't include 
clang, as I believe it should be built as a separate package. I think 
it's possible to download both llvm and clang tarballs, place clang 
inside the tools subdirectory and run `make install' from there. We'll 
need to investigate this possibility.

Testing of the uploaded packages would be appreciated. :)
