Completely new beast and potential for least-surprise.  I can imagine CLANG/LLVM showing up *alongside* gcc in some future release, but not as an outright replacement.  Not yet.

And remember -- these are just for building non-illumos stuff.  illumos is still being built with the specially-modified gcc4.4.4.  (Though I wouldn't mind if someone spent time bringing up LLVM/CLANG to build illumos... it would just be really REALLY hard.)
