    Another useless article. Wake me when LibreOffice or any other piece of software doesn't hardcode configurations for GCC or any other compiler suite, complies with C++11/C99 and stops implying by their failuress that the compiler is the source of how come it cannot compile outside specific compiler suites.

    Hell, compiling Inkscape would be a snap for LLVM/Clang if Inkscape didn't hardcode for GCC and fail upon not finding it.
