I'll contact maintainer via e-mail then, but I might wait a week before
doing that, since it's holidays time.

clang package already contains llvm, since clang is built as part of
llvm but is built differently than llvm and they conflict with each
other in this case but they should belong with each other.

As you can see in the pkgbuild, clang clones llvm source and everything
from that source is built.
