Please review a webrev to enable XCode5 build on Mac OS X, this webrev
add basic clang flags and detect Xcode version to set default toolchain
to clang for Xcode5 and after, otherwise set to gcc for Mac OS X.
This patch build on Maverick with Xcode 5, but is not yet sufficient to
enable clang build on my Arch Linux, where I installed clang 3.4. There
are some undeclare identifier|function|type warnings/errors, the cause
of which is still under investigation, my guess lies in precompile
header, but I think that can be addressed later.
