Hi,

it is now possible to build wireshark with clang (CC=clang ./configure &&
make) (i fix last issue last week end).
Great news!



I will try the ASAN feature (
http://clang.llvm.org/docs/AddressSanitizer.html )
ASAN is also ported to GCC 4.8.
I'm not sure which compiler is more reliable regarding ASAN checks, though.

...

Also may be now add a clang build to buildbot? (no only scan-build)
I also wanted to raise the question of adding '-fsanitize=address'  to
the C flags.
I think fuzzing with ASAN would worth the extra CPU time on buildbots
and I'm even considering
turning ASAN on in the Debian packages by default.


ASAN is basically a borrowed subset of valgrind, so fuzzing with ASAN is
not necessary if we can ever get fuzzing with valgrind to work...
