Default x11/tint2 port using clang

x11/tint2 added clang support after 12.2 version currently in ports. The clang announcement said that it was now the default compiler. I have been using tint2-14.5 on -current for about 6 weeks and would like to recompile with clang. x11/tint2 uses cmake.

bsd.port.mk(5) indicates that one can choose the compiler

CHOSEN_COMPILER
Usually read-only. Compiler suite chosen by the COMPILER mechanism. Set to ‘irrelevant’ to disable COMPILER.
.

With that background.
1. Do I need to specify clang in the Makefile or do anything special to cmake?
2. Any clang tests need to be run on the build?
3. If clang fails, does one specify gcc4 in the interim?

Default

The compiler clang has been the default compiler for amd64 and i386 base AND ports since late July. If you have followed the July 29 entry of the Following -current FAQ, all of your installed packages will have been built by the clang compiler except those which still require to be built by gcc 4.9 or gcc 4.2.

Can, yes. Should, no. And it doesn't work like you'd necessarily think. Setting COMPILER=gcc for example would still use clang on CLANG_ARCHS (amd64/arm64/i386 as of right now). It would, however, set gcc-4.9 on non-CLANG_ARCHS.

No. Unless the project has hard dependencies on GNU C features that clang will never support (these things actually exist...), then you'd set COMPILER=gcc-only. But you should never have to do that.
