Hey all, Ruben over at the MinGW-w64 project has started providing a Clang
toolchain built upon MinGW-w64.
I just tried compiling Boost trunk r72754 with it, and figured I'd post the
output here so work can commence bringing it in line with GCC via MinGW-w64.
90% of the errors seem to be a result of a 'call to deleted constructor'
which seems to be caused by the shared_ptr library (or its usage)... Then
the remaining 5% seem to be quite similar in nature, so it doesn't look like
stuff will be too horrible to fix, but I don't know enough about the
implementation of shared_ptr to fix it at the moment.
One other thing to take into consideration will be the lack of a Clang
Windows toolset. Currently when you set your toolset to Clang under MinGW,
Boost treats it as Clang-Linux. I'm not sure what exactly that will
The script I used and the resulting output is available here:
