Re: checking package with clang

As I wrote before, I've posted a patch to BTS that add an option use clang compiler to pbuilder. However, pbuilder maintainer Junichi wasn't satisfied with it because he thought it seems to be overhead, introduce complexity and also hook script is enough.

I didn't agree with his opinion since I thought every time we need to add and remove its script, but Thorsten Glaser shows just specifying environment variables can solve it, and moreover, he points other compiler can be supported via hook, too. Sounds good, right? :)

Then I post a new hook script, it works with gcc-4.{4-8} and clang (gcc-4.8 needs experimental apt line for pbuilder). Please test it if you'd be interested.
