After much investigation it turns out ‘ccache’ is the problem here. If ccache is enabled with clang builds the __GNUC__ is defined some how, I never did find the location.

Adding the CCACHE_CPP2=yes

Cleaned up all of the compiler errors I was seeing ☺

Do we need to document this in DPDK and if so where in the docs would someone suggest it be placed?
