Yes, and also guile-2.0.5 (see below for more info).

I have not tried that one. There is not issue with libffi from latest GIT 
compiled with llvm-gcc-4.2, and guile-2.0.5 compiled with SVN gcc-4.7.

Indeed, as there are three compilers :-):
  /usr/bin/cc -> llvm-gcc-4.2
  /usr/bin/gcc -> llvm-gcc-4.2
These are provided by Xcode 4.2.1. So if one does not set CC, one will use 

This compiler, llvm-gcc-4.2, is also what I use for system installation, as the 
SVN gcc-4.7 is experimental. Also gcc-4.7 was compiled using llvm-gcc-4.2; it 
did not compile with gcc-4.6.2.

So it seems safest to stick to llvm-gcc-4.2, as that is what package developers 
mostly will check against.
