parentsys-devel/llvm: Enable the linker plugin by default (diff)
sys-devel/llvm: Rename USE={gold → binutils-plugin}
The plugin is now used by other binutils tools, and gold is no longer really relevant these days. Signed-off-by: Michał Górny <>

3. A compiler infrastructure - LLVM is also a collection of source code that implements the language and compilation strategy. The primary components of the LLVM infrastructure are a GCC-based C and C++ front-end, a link-time optimization framework with a growing set of global and interprocedural analyses and transformations, static back-ends for many popular (and some obscure) architectures, a back-end which emits portable C code, and a Just-In-Time compilers for several architectures.
4. LLVM does not imply things that you would expect from a high-level virtual machine. It does not require garbage collection or run-time code generation (In fact, LLVM makes a great static compiler!). Note that optional LLVM components can be used to build high-level virtual machines and other systems that need these services.</longdescription>
