Hello Guix,

I recently noticed that Clang has some extra references:

It retains references two *two* separate gcc-7.5.0-lib outputs, two
separate zlib-1.2.11 outputs, and a gcc-7.5.0 output (clang shouldn't
need GCC, right?)

Okay, so only the gcc references are direct.  Where is the double
gcc-7.5.0-lib reference coming from?

It has an extra runpath but doesn't use it... Why does it have it?

So the configure step is probably putting that in there... but why does
it have access to two different gcc-7.5.0-lib inputs in the first place?

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
    (inputs
     `(("libxml2" ,libxml2)

That's reasonable, for cross-compiling... or should it be
`,(canonical-package gcc)' instead?  It couldn't be that simple, could
it?

But even if that fixes non-cross-compiled builds, the above implies that
cross-compiled Clangs could retain a reference to the native gcc-lib as
well.  That shouldn't be, right?

As for zlib... zlib isn't a direct reference, so where is it coming from?

They use two separate zlibs, even though they both reference the same
zlib package!  Why?

I hope we have a Clang expert here!  What do you think?
