There are two things that can be described as "clang on Windows". One is
clang-cl.exe, the clang that tries to emulate MSVC. It's not usable. Other
is the plain clang++.exe, compiled to use MinGW. The second one uses the
"clang.linux" toolset and works more or less fine except for the issue in
the subject line.
