I was told by clang developers that clang using VC++ RTL uses the MSVC
linker. A clang linker evidently is in the works but is not ready yet.

BTW if you are successful in creating a toolset for clang on Windows
using VC++ RTL, could you please keep everyone informed on this mailing
list. I would very much like to use such a toolset in testing such a
clang using VC++ RTL with Boost Build against Boost libraries.
