I wouldn't worry about this too much, for modern archs OpenBSD ships
with llvm and for most others we have newer version of gcc in ports that can
be used in llvm isn't supported for those archs. I was testing on amd64
and everything works just fine with OpenBSD clang version 8.0.0
(tags/RELEASE_800/final) (based on LLVM 8.0.0).
