[OpenSCAD] compiling with clang

Got a compile with the Clang compiler working on ubuntu 12. There is a
new branch of the OpenSCAD that may make this a bit easier..

git clone git://github.com/openscad/openscad.git
cd openscad
git checkout clang
source ./scripts/setenv-linbuild-clang.sh
qmake && make

This will attempt to download and compile a bunch of the dependencies
using clang itself into $HOME/openscad_deps, including the recently
released CGAL 4.0.2 which is required to build with clang.

Test results are here and look pretty good:


I think a main problem is that I don't know how to download MCAD and
stick it into the proper place?

Interesting note is that clang requires much less memory than gcc on a
non-debug build, maybe 40-50 percent less.
