Super, and welcome. We now have a much-revised build system that
should be better able to work with llvm. There are scattered efforts
that have shown how to compile RTEMS with clang for a couple of
targets (sparc, riscv), and it would be a great effort to try to unify
the support and integrate to our development tools.
We have a Python-based tool (RTEMS Source Builder (RSB)) for building
host/cross compiler toolchains (and orchestrating other builds):
Our documentation on the build system and RSB are fairly robust, and
may be a good place for you to start building some knowledge:
We can probably get input from people who have managed to build a
clang toolchain. I have run clang-analyzer over RTEMS as well in the
past. It should be a good time now to get the llvm/clang
infrastructure well-integrated to our development ecosystem.
