Hey Steve,

Does clang come with its own libraries, and are they *not* GPL, so that
one can use C on Linux to create proprietary programs?

Unlike Stallman, I believe there's a place in this world for both Free
and Proprietary software, and it should be the author's choice which
way to go, and yet using GCC I can't legally make proprietary software.
