I think Pat and crew know about this, though. ponce or pprkut (curse your similar names!) on IRC said this was found just after 14.0 came out (C++ code not compiling that is).
Clang 3.2 came out 20 days ago (to the date of this post), so I think if we wait patiently we'll get it in -current and perhaps it'll fix the problems (I read somewhere that a newer clang/llvm will fix it).
After further research on google: clang "fatal error:" "file not found"
It looks like all different versions of clang on all different platforms can fail with this error.
And after using the "-v" option of clang, I found the problem.

The current installation of clang is dependent on gcc 4.7.1, but Slackware current uses gcc 4.7.2
This means that clang must be re-built every time that gcc changes and I suspect that this is true for g++ and any other compiler that clang might use.
