Clang on a linux install gives the same errors, as far as I can see. What
I'm using is clang 3.4 on Fedora 20, and clang 3.3 on FreeBSD 10. 

If you like, if you just fix clang on Linux compilation, I can check for any
additional errors on FreeBSD and get back to you on them, rather than you having
to install a FreeBSD system right away.
