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. :)
